That is an issue that the patient should discuss with their oncologist and/or attending physician. One might wish to consider a hospice or other such care facilty. One might wish to meet with family to discuss what needs to be done in terms of a will or other legal matter, final arrangements and so forth. But the patient definitely needs to get factual answers from a qualified professional.

What happens when you have terminal liver cancer?

As with any "terminal" disease terminal liver cancer means there is no cure and doctors expect the patient to die from either the cancer or a complication of the disease. One very important thing to remember is no doctor can tell when the death will occur. If the person chooses to fight the cancer he may outlive all expectations. Staying positive will help and having loved ones close by will give the person needed strength. Remember that laughter is very strong medicine. It is so important that many major medical centers use comedy videos as part of their treatment program.

It depends on the type of lymphoma cancer. I have follicular lymphoma cancer, (non-agressive) and I am taking chemo therapy and expect the cancer to go into remission. According to the doctors, a person with this form of lymphoma cancer can live for years with it; you never are cured. The thing is you have to get checked constantly after it goes into remission for any return.
