Hepatocellular carcinoma Service

Hepatocellular carcinoma is cancer of the liver.

Obstetrics and gynecology includes womens reproductive health and pre-natal care, labor and post natal care.

  • Hepatocellular carcinoma is not the same as metastatic liver cancer, which starts in another organ (breast or colon) and spreads to the liver.
  • The cause of liver cancer is usually scarring of the liver (cirrhosis). Cirrhosis may be caused by:

    • Alcohol abuse
    • Certain autoimmune diseases of the liver
    • Diseases that cause long-term swelling and irritation (chronic inflammation) of the liver
    • Hepatitis B and C
    • Too much iron in the body (hemochromatosis)
 Symptoms
  • Abdominal pain or tenderness, especially in the upper-right part
  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Enlarged abdomen
  • Yellow skin and eyes (jaundice)

  • Physical examination may show an enlarged, tender liver tests include:

    • Abdominal CT scan
    • Liver biopsy
    • Liver enzymes (liver function tests)
    • Liver scan
    • Serum alpha fetoprotein
 Treatment
  1. Aggressive surgery or a liver transplant - small or slow-growing tumors if they are diagnosed early.
  2. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments -may be used to shrink large tumors so that surgery has a greater chance of success.
