I found this site be just browsing and thought it may be useful. I see tons of postings for those with HEP C but not much on HEP B. Recently I was diagnosed with HEP B which has turned to liver cancer. The tumor is 14 cm and I am on an oral chemo treatment Neproxen praying for a miracle to happen.

I want to know if any has been cured of this using Neproxen?

Thank you.

Hello, HepDavis, and welcome to the forum!  I am very sorry to hear that you have chronic hep B and liver cancer.  That's quite a large tumor you have!  Mine was 12 cm x 11.5 cm and it took up the entire right lobe.  I don't know who you are seeing for this, but you need a lot more than Naproxen, which is an anti-inflammatory.  It is sold over the counter as Aleve.  If you are having pain, perhaps it was given to you for that.
 
I suggest that you see an oncologist, preferably at a center such as Mayo, and a hepatologist.  Regular chemo does not work for liver cancer, but there are other treatments.  I had chemoembolization and TheraSphere to kill the tumor, and then had the rt. lobe removed.  I have been cancer free for 4 yrs. now, but Mayo still keeps a close eye on me.  It is vital that you get aggressive treatment ASAP!
 
Hugs,
Connie

Hello Hepdavis and welcome to HealingWell.
 
I agree with Connie......you need to have a heart to heart with a  cancer doctor or at the very least a hepatologist.   Ask lots of questions.......write them down and take them with you.   Don't sit on this get a plan going with your doctors as soon as possible. 
 
Also read our educational thread in the resource folder..it will give you ideas of what you should be asking and telling the doctors......
 
Take care........thoughts and prayers......
