Yes I had liver cancer, I had a belly ache and my doctor sent me for all the test, MRI upper GI, ultrasound of my stomach, and when they did that they seen a shadow on my liver, if it wasn't for that they would have never found my tumor. It was removed, and when they removed it, it was low grade stage 1. I'm fine now. No more cancer. I was really lucky if it wasn't for my doctor I would be dead.

My husband was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer this October. By the time he was diagnosed (after a bungled biopsy of a mass that had formed on his right rib) we were told he only had a couple months. He is in so much pain and has suffered with what I am learning to think of as common side effects of this stage of his disease, extreme pain, weight loss, swelling and jaundice. What I didn't expect is the hallucinations, confusion and profound memory loss. We have been together for eighteen years and it is absolutely devastating to not only watch him loose his life, but our memories as well.

My mother is suffering from the said disease. It was approx six months before that taste of her mouth started to change and then some pain just below the rib on right side. After consulting the local doctors and then also the doctors out of station, many ultra sounds and X-Rays, blood tests could not reveal the problem and now after so many months of suffering it is now finally diagnosed that she is suffering from Liver Cancer which has now spread till stomach through Gall bladder. The severe pain in stomach these days does even allow her to lie down.
