Mr Robert Hutchins's Places of Practice
Secondary liver cancer treatment
Despite often having very successful treatment for a primary cancer, unfortunately many patients will go on to develop secondary cancer in other sites around the body such as the bones, lungs and liver. The most dangerous time for development of secondary disease is the first two years after diagnosis, although sometimes the disease will have already spread by the time that the cancer is diagnosed. The development of secondary disease is a feature of the aggressiveness and ability of the primary cancer to spread beyond its original site and this does not reflect any failure on behalf of surgical treatment or subsequent chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments.Read full article
