This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor.
what type of cancer was seen in the brain?
the new scan sounds like there is cancer also in the liver as well
it would be rare for maxillary sinus cancer in the sinus and brain to spread to the liver.
so the liver lesions need to be biopsied through CT guidance to see what type of cancer is in the liver or what is going on in the liver.
usually squamous cell carcinomas are the type of cancer which originate from the maxillary sinuses.
Originally it was diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma, but then changed to ademocarcinoma
then a liver biopsy is needed to check for adenocarcinoma to see if that is present in the liver as well
or if there is another type of cancer in the liver.
the biopsy from the liver can then be compared to the surgery tissue from the brain and sinuses to see if the cancers are the same or different.
Biopsy is this Thursday.
