In brief: Fair

If a known primary has been detected along with liver mets and has been removed the results of treating the liver lesion are fair. If the met is solitary it can be resected.
If multiple then microwave ablation has been employed. Following this systemic chemotherapy followed by chemoembolization has been employed. This all depends on degree of cirrhosis.
