Liver Cancer

Liver cancer appropriately referred to as primary liver cancer is cancer resulting from cancerous cells in the liver. The liver serves to filter blood, create bile, to store and releasing sugars among other functions. Cancer from other organs can spread to the liver via blood circulation resulting in metastatic cancer. The liver is composed of many cells, which gives rise to different types of tumors, where some are noncancerous, and others are cancerous. The most common form of cancer from the liver is the hepatocellular carcinoma.

Signs and symptoms
  • Swelling or pain in the abdomen
  • Loss of appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Yellowing of the eye whites’ and the skin a condition known as jaundice
  • Feeling tired and weak
  • Fever
  • White or chalky stools
Risk factors

  • HBV or HCV: Chronic infection with hepatitis C Virus (HCV) or Hepatitis B virus increases the risk.
  • Diabetes: People with diabetes have a high risk of contracting liver cancer than those without diabetes.
  • Others include: Exposure to aflatoxins, obesity, excessive alcohol consumption, and some inherited liver conditions.
Treatment

Liver cancer if detected early is treatable, hence the need to visit a doctor regularly for diagnosis. The procedure adopted depends on the stage of the liver cancer.

Surgery

In other cases, cancer from the liver easily spreads through the body due to the purification process of blood. Therefore, treating the liver through surgical means could lead to eliminating the problem partially to reoccur later. However, in the present times, surgical methods have improved, and survival rates have improved tremendously.

A surgical process will use a general anesthesia and follow-up medications.
