Liver Cancer

Liver cancer usually occurs when the tumor has spread from another part of the body. Often it is seen that primary liver cancer affects people who are in their 60s.

Liver cancer

If a patient is diagnosed with liver diseases, the doctor recommends going for screening for liver cancer.

  • Jaundice Symptoms
  • Dark urine
  • Fever, severe fatigue, bloating
  • Legs or abdomen swelling
  • Abdominal pain

If a person experiences any of the above symptoms, then it is recommended he/she goes through the required diagnostic tests early to get timely treatment.

  • Medical History
  • Physical Examination
  • Blood Tests
  • Imaging
  • Biopsy
  • Test for FLL-HCC
  • Surgery: Surgery involves partial removal of the liver that is damaged while keeping the good portions intact. But if unavoidable, the entire organ is removed.

  • Liver Transplantation: This procedure is advised if the patient is still in early cancer stages, and the tumor has not spread to surrounding tissues and blood vessels.

  • Minimally Invasive Treatments: If liver cancer is diagnosed earlier, the tumors can be targeted by minimally invasive techniques.
    • Laparoscopy
    • Ablation
    • Vapourising a tumor with intense heat
    • Nanoknife sends electrical charges to destroy the tumors
    • Embolization interrupts blood flow to the cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy uses anti-cancer drugs and helps to kill cancer cells. The type of chemotherapy that will be recommended will depend on the type of primary cancer. 
  • Radiation Therapy: Radiation therapy is used along with the above procedures. In Image-guided radiation therapy, tumors are targeted using real-time images. Radiation therapy is used to reduce tumors in the liver. It is not a significant part of cancer treatment. This is because other treatments tend to give better results.
