Liver Cancer

Liver is the largest organ inside our body. It helps the body to digest food, store energy, and remove poisons. Primary Liver Cancer starts in the liver. Metastatic Liver Cancer starts elsewhere in the body and spreads to the liver.

Risk factors for primary Liver Cancer Includes:

Having hepatitis B or C

Heavy alcohol use

Having cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver

Having hemochromatosis, an iron storage disease

Obesity and diabetes

Symptoms can include a lump or pain on the right side of your abdomen and yellowing of the skin. However, one may not have symptoms until the cancer cells evolve. This makes it difficult to treat. Doctors use tests that examine the liver and the blood to diagnose liver cancer. Treatment options include surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, or liver transplantation.
