Title: Metastatic Liver Cancer


1
Metastatic Liver Cancer
2
  • Liver metastasis occurs when cancerous tumor
    cells spread to the liver from another part of
    the body. These tumor cells often appear shortly
    after the primary tumor develops, or months or
    years later.

3
  • Most liver metastases start as cancers in colon
    or rectum.

4
  • Nearly 70 of patients with colorectal cancer
    develop liver metastases. This happens in part
    because blood from intestines is connected
    directly to liver through the portal vein. 

5
Although much less common, liver metastases can
start from breast, esophagus, stomach, pancreas,
lung, kidney or skin cancer.
6
  • The progression of metastatic liver is quite
    severe and abrupt, so treatment must commence as
    soon as possible after first diagnosed, based on
    the following symptoms.
