In brief: Depends
It is hard to say as it will depend on the type of cancer you have, the staging and the biology of the cancer. You should discuss in detail with your oncology team.

In brief: Depends
Your 5 year life expectancy would be based on: the type of cancer you have (primary or metastatic), size of the lesion, number of lesions, whether both lobes are involved, and whether you have enough functional liver tissue.
In general, if your surgeon and oncologist feel that you have resectable disease then they have an expectation of at least a 20-30% five year survival.
