Hi All

This is my 1st time on Cancer Compass....1st of all thank you for reading in advance! I really appreciate it and my heart goes out to all of you...Heres the story:

 My grandad was diagnosed with liver and stomach cancer 19 months ago and was given 6 to 9 months left (he's a fighter) But has internal bleeding (he has been sick with old blood - sorry for being graphic) which i have read is a symptom of liver cancer. He is 83 so is just taking medication to ease it rather than fight this horrible disease. I just wanted to know if anyone knows what we can expect to hear from doctors? I've never dealt with liver cancer before so it's all new to me (and hard)

 Thanks again for reading...any information is really appreciated!

 luv

Hi.  I am sorry to hear about your grandad.  My Dad just found out and he had a petscan and they said they can not see his liver that it may be bleeding or filled with blood.  He is getting  a MRI stat to look around.  Did your grandad face any of this?  I am scared and have not a clue. Thanks for your help.
