Maybe "liver"?

You could both be right, but what are secretions of the liver?

I think itís written Scirrhocis (or similar) of Liver and Dropsy, and is probably meant to be Cirrhosis.

ADDED - in general, could you please post much smaller images for deciphering purposes? Reading at this size is rather difficult.

According to various sources online, a scirrhous carcinoma is a hard, slow-growing malignant tumour having a preponderance of fibrous tissue.  Still remember how sad it was seeing that on the death certificate of an ancestor, even though I knew from her diaries that she had had breast cancer.
