Hello everyone my name is Kevin, and this is my first post on CancerCompass. I am in tears as i type this. My father today after getting liver biopsy results we were told by his gastroenterologist that he has NET tumors, which have metastasized through his liver ( multiple lesions ). He has multiple, with average size 4-5 cm with the biggest one being 8 cm. We are waiting on more clinical results (tumor marker tests and etc) to arrive early next week to know that where is the primary site and hopefully how much and how far it has spread and how many more tumors are there. The doctor told us that in his professional expeirence he believes there are from pancreas but he is not sure. From what i have researched they might be non-functioning pancreatic NET cancer. Next steps he recommended is to wait to find out the primary sites and then consult with an oncologist ASAP and start chemo. He has currently no extreme symptoms that someone with this bad metastasized liver. The symtoms he has in enlarged liver ( bump in abdomen), weight loss and loss of apetitie. No nasuea,stool,constipitation,yellow(jaundice) or any abdomnial pain. He is healthy as a thoroughbred. I don't know what to do till we find out the primary sites and how far it has spread. My mind is racing and thinking the worst that he has mere months left to live and there is nothing we can do. I am a very positive and strong person and i will fight with him. If anyone has gone through this please share your store i would be really grateful. Thank you.
