HCV to HCC (warrior)

Are any of you seeing this new treatment for primary liver cancer (HCC) coming?

Looks promising but I can find much about availability.

Yes I am thinking this could be a major Breakthrough for those of us who has HCC but other than that do fairly well day2day.

Playing Whac-A-Mole could become better than TX and what comes with that.

My latest tumor is in watch status.  Two have already been treated.
Well happy to hear your still hanging in there and keeping up the fight.

I had some unknown suspicious growths in my liver that are being watched with CT scan every 6 months so far no changes so I’m hopeful they aren’t cancer
Are they l- rad leasons? I've had l- rad 3 leasons for a couple years that they are watching.
Ejoli are you asking me or the OP?

Mine are LIRAD 3 and I’m getting MRI with contrast every 6 months. So far they have been stable for the last year and a half. My doctor thinks they are cirrhosis regenerative nodules so fingers crossed.
Oh, I just saw your comment. Mine are also l-rad 3 . I've had them about 2 years. CT every 6 months.  Keeping fingers crossed also. I don't really worry about them since they haven't changed in the last 2 years.
