RADIOEMBOLIZATION FOR HCC

Last reply: 2 years ago

Hello. My husband has HCC liver cancer and one round of TACE therapy has been unsuccessful - the cancer has progressed. His Dr is suggesting Radioembolization - has anyone had this treatment done? Thank you.

Dear LACO,

I am sorry to hear of your husband's diagnosis. It is a very stressful and worrying time when treatments change. There is some information on  radioembolisation here, which you might find useful: https://www.cancerresearchuk.org/about-cancer/liver-cancer/treatment/radiotherapy/radioembolisation. If you would like to call the Nurseline on 1800 200 700, we would be happy to discuss with you in more detail.

Best wishes,

Cancer nurse
