In 2009, Mansfield was also diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia, which is a type of blood cancer that affects the lymph nodes.

According to, liver cancer is complicated by the fact that most patients have damage that limits the organ’s function. The liver provides an important service to the body by aiding in digestion and detoxification. Decreased liver function can lead to serious, even life-threatening, conditions. Decreased liver function may also be important in choosing treatment options.

According to the site, advanced stage 4 cancer has two subcategories:

  • Stage 4A: One or more tumors of any size are found, and the cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes but has not reached distant sites.
  • Stage 4B: One or more tumors of any size are found. Cancer may or may not reach nearby lymph nodes, but it has spread to distant organs such as the lungs or bones.
