BRCA screening has its limits in assessing dangers for women with a family history of disease, experts say

i'm 53 and hardly had a days illness in my life.
recently however, i was suffering from constipation for number of days and started being sick.
my GP tried to treating the constipation it was felt this was causing the sickness - nowhere for the food to go.
when there was no improvement i was given a endoscopy and CT scan.
the result is cancer of the duodenum which has spread to the liver which i have been told is incurable but may be retarded with a course of chemo which i start next week.
it is probably a dumb question but is there any alternative treatment i could consider.
