What Happens In The Final Stage of Metastatic Liver Cancer?

Q:
What happens in the final stage of metastatic liver cancer?
A:
During the final stage of metastatic liver cancer, many things may happen.

Liver cells are called hepatocytes that help detoxify the body and process harmful chemicals. When these normal hepatocytes start growing rapidly, uncontrollably and proliferate abnormally, it leads to formation of cancer or tumor. During the final stage (stage 4) of cancer, these cancerous cells migrate to other parts of the body and spread cancer. This is known as metastasis. Liver ceases to carry out its normal function during this stage. The only cure at this stage is liver transplantation.
Facing the final stage of life some people have cancer that is in an advanced stage or can no longer be treated successfully and they must face the fact that they will probably die. This is scary for the person who is sick and for those around them.. The person with cancer may be in pain, may be in bed or be able to walk only a few steps, or be confused. This process of decline is usually hard to watch if you are a friend or relative. No matter how hard it may be, it is still important to try to be there for the person.

Patients need a lot of care. Even in the final stage of the disease, we cannot totally give up, anything could happen!
