What cancers can be treated?
SIRT is used to treat liver tumours that cannot be removed by surgery. The two commonest uses of SIRT are to treat liver tumours that have spread from the bowel and primary liver cancer (tumours that started in the liver).
It is also possible to treat a variety of other cancers that have spread to the liver from other parts of the body, for example liver cancer that has spread to the liver from the breast. The most important thing is for your doctor to assess your condition and to see if SIRT would be suitable.
