We got the results from my husbands CT Scan today. The oncologist said that he has one large mass and several smaller lesions on the right lobe of his liver. He doesn't think that his pancreasis is involved. He thinks that this matastized from Malignant melanoma (he had this 18 years ago). He is going to do a biopsy next friday and than wants to schedule him for a new procedure called radiofrequency ablation. This is a very new procedure and this oncologist has only done one as to this date. This is not a cure as he said that there is not a cure. He said that prognosis is poor. I have told my kids that there dad has cancer but haven't told them this other. I don't think that they really understand. My oldest daughter does, but the other kids - well ya know they think mom and dad can fix everything. They are also going to do a bonescan and a scope of his stomach. I still think that his other symptoms sound like PC, but I guess we will know more when they complete the biopsy. Thanks so much everyone. If this isn't pancreatic cancer do I have to find a new message board????? Thank you I am so scared!!!!!!!
