Question:

Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
My mother has just been told that she has gallbladder cancer and that the cancer also has spread to the liver. Her doctor tells her that she is incurable and he recommends no treatment other than pain treatment. She also has a gallstone and takes some type of analgesic to reduce her pain. She has no other symptoms yet. The doctor isn't going to treat the gallstone.
  1. Could this be right? Isn't there any treatment possible in this situation?
  2. Even if there is no treatment available, could not the gallstone be removed to relieve her pain?
Yours Sincerely,
AJ
