Signs of liver metastases?


Question from Zim: After stage I breast cancer, what signs indicate movement to the liver? My MRI shows two small "lesions."
Answers - Larry Norton, M.D. If the lesions are small, they may not have symptoms at all. So you can have metastatic disease and not be aware of it in terms of how you feel. However, if the cancer is there, it should be treated. One important step is to make sure that any suspected areas of metastasis are biopsied to confirm that they are metastatic sites before therapy is instituted.

On Wednesday, October 17, 2007 our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer. Larry Norton, M.D. and moderator Marisa Weiss, M.D. answered your questions about managing day-to-day life with metastatic breast cancer.
