Liver Cancer  
Liver cancer or Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is
one of the commonest cancers in the world which
have a high incidence of Hepatitis B infection.
Apart from Hepatitis B, it may be caused by other
diseases that lead to cirrhosis of the liver such
as Hepatitis C infection, and alcohol abuse.
Unfortunately, like many other cancers, liver
cancer may go undetected until a late stage. It
is often brought to attention by an ultrasound or
CT scan done for pain in the upper abdomen or
another unrelated symptom.
Liver cancers are malignant tumors that grow on
the surface or inside the liver. Typers of liver
cancer are Hepatocellular Carcinoma ,
Cholangiocarcinoma , Hepatoblastoma and
Angiosarcoma or Hemangiosarcoma
