For many people with liver cancer, the cancer cannot be cured. This can be frightening. Talking to your health care team can help you understand your situation.
Palliative treatments may stop further cancer growth and allow you to continue doing the things you enjoy for several months or years. However, facing the fact that the cancer cannot be cured can be very distressing.
You can call Cancer Council 13 11 20 for support and information or talk to the social worker or spiritual care practitioner (such as a chaplain) at your hospital or treatment centre.
For more on this, see Advanced Cancer or call Cancer Council 13 11 20.
