Prognosis means the expected outcome of a disease. You may wish to discuss your prognosis and treatment options with your doctor, but it is not possible for any doctor to predict the exact course of the disease. Liver cancer can often be effectively treated, especially if found before it spreads outside the liver.
To work out your liver cancer prognosis, your doctor will consider:
- test results
- the type of liver cancer
- whether you have cirrhosis, and how well the liver is working
- how well you respond to treatment
- other factors such as your age, fitness and overall health.
Consult with your doctor and he can make a liver cancer prognosis for you.
