    liver from a donor.
  • Localized treatments-
  • These are for liver cancer, which is directly
    administered to the cancer cells or the area
    surrounding those cancer cells, including
  • Heating cancer cells In this electric current
    to heat and destroy cancer cells is used by
    radiofrequency ablation.
  • Freezing cancer cells In this extreme cold to
    destroy cancer cells is used by cryoablation.
  • Injection of alcohol to the tumor Pure alcohol
    is injected directly into tumors, either during
    an operation or through the skin. The tumor cells
    die because of alcohol. (4)
  • Injection of chemotherapy drugs to the liver
    Chemoembolization a type of chemotherapy that
    supplies potent anti-cancer drugs to the liver
  • Placing radiation-filled beads in the liver To
    deliver radiation straight to the tumor, tiny
    spheres containing radiation are placed directly
    in the liver.
