About Liver Cancer

Liver cancer is the cancer that begins in the cells of your liver. Cancer that begins in another area of the body and then spreads to the liver is called metastatic cancer rather than liver cancer. The most common type of liver cancer is hepatocellular carcinoma (or hepatoma or HCC), and it tends to affect males more than females.

Alcoholics are at a greater risk of developing liver cancer. Most people don’t have signs and symptoms in the early stages of primary liver cancer.

No symptoms are seen in early stages of primary liver cancer, When signs and symptoms do appear, they may include:

  • Losing weight without trying
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • General weakness and fatigue
  • Upper abdominal pain
  • Abdominal swelling, white chalky stools
  • Yellow discolouration of your skin and the whites of eyes (jaundice)
Diagnosis, Management and Treatment
