Metastatic carcinoma

Posted by @rabiaaa18, Dec 17, 2018

My aunt is diagnosed with metastatic carcinoma of liver and lungs.. the doctor said that she can live 3 or 4 years and he gave her hormonal tablets to stop the growth of this cancer. Is there any curable treatment in Mayo Clinic 🙁

Hello @rabiaaa18 and welcome to Mayo Connect.

I appreciate the interest you are taking in your aunt's recent diagnosis. I know how difficult a diagnosis of metastatic carcinoma can be. How was her diagnosis confirmed? Is she interested in seeking a second opinion at a Mayo Clinic? There are three Mayo facilities in Minnesota, Florida and Arizona. The best way to find out if she is a candidate for further treatment would be to call for an appointment. Here is information regarding making an appointment:

We have had many Members here on Connect who have sought treatment and help at Mayo. I would encourage you to read some of their posts at the following links, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/lung-cancer/. Here you will see many discussions relating to lung cancer.

Is your aunt currently in a lot of pain? How is her breathing?

I am glad that she has no serious symptoms right now. That is good news.

Regarding any possible treatment at Mayo, you would have to call Mayo (and perhaps send her medical records) and see what they have to say. Here is the info again for calling for an appointment, https://www.mayoclinic.org/appointments

Will you post and let me know what you find out?

Hi @rabiaaa18, I add my welcome. What type of carcinoma does your aunt have? In other words, where did it start? Did it start in the liver and then metastacized to the lungs? Or was it a carcinoma of unknown primary? (https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/carcinoma-unknown-primary/symptoms-causes/syc-20370683)

Can i send you her reports here ?so you can check the type and disease

@rabiaaa18

No, you need to call the Mayo appointment phone number for the Mayo facility closest to your aunt and ask them what they need to see.
Will you let me know how it goes?
