The Relationship Of Nasopharyngeal Cancer With Swelling Of The Liver?
Good morning, I want to ask the relationship between swelling of the liver and nasopharyngeal cancer ??
Hello Ferry, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted the doctor who is treating your mother about the cause of this swelling of the liver? Nasopharyngeal cancer is abnormal tissue growth in the nasopharyngeal region, namely in the back of the nose and behind the roof of the mouth. This condition can cause sufferers to experience lumps in the throat, tinnitus, headaches, difficulty opening the mouth, nosebleeds, sore throats, nasal congestion, and blurred vision. There are several treatments that doctors recommend for sufferers that are tailored to the patient's condition, the stage of the cancer, and the location of the cancer. These cancer treatments include radiotherapy, chemotherapy, surgery, and immunotherapy.
Swelling of the liver can be caused by various health conditions. If your mother is undergoing chemotherapy using drugs that can damage the liver, it is possible that the swelling of the liver is caused by the side effects of chemotherapy. However, swelling of the liver can also be caused by viral infections, side effects of other drugs, cirrhosis of the liver, hepatoma, spread of cancer, and others. Further tests are needed by a doctor such as a blood test or biopsy to determine the cause of the liver swelling that you are referring to. Therefore, you should consult with the doctor who is treating your mother because the doctor has already done the examination / will carry out further examinations so that you better understand your mother's current condition. Thus, you will get a more precise explanation.
Hopefully this information helps you.
