What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Behira Aziz – Liver Cancer Survivor

What Is Liver Cancer? Understand Your Disease

Carcinoma of the liver begins in the tissues of the liver, a football-shaped organ that sits in the upper right portion of the abdomen. This glandular organ has several fundamental functions: It clears toxins from the body, aids with digestion, and helps preserve nutrients from food. When liver cancer emerges, it interferes with the organ's ability to function normally. Without urgent treatment, liver cancer can cause permanent damage, liver failure, and death.

Liver Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The primary types of liver cancer in adults are:

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)

This cancer, also known as hepatoma, develops in the predominant liver cells (hepatocytes). It is the most common type of liver carcinoma, accounting for 75 percent of all liver cancers.

Cholangiocarcinoma

This cancer begins in the tube-like bile ducts in the liver and accounts for 10 to 20 percent of all liver cancers. Cholangiocarcinoma has two types: (1) intrahepatic bile duct cancer, which occurs in the section of the ducts inside the liver; and (2) extrahepatic bile duct cancer, which starts in the part of the ducts outside the liver.

Liver Angiosarcoma

This rare form of liver cancer begins in the blood vessels of the liver. It tends to progress quickly and aggressively.

Symptoms of Liver Cancer

Early and advanced liver cancer may manifest in one or more of the following:

  • Jaundice
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Weakness or fatigue
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Vague discomfort in the abdomen
  • Pain in the right shoulder
  • Intense itching of the skin
  • Fevers and chills
  • Enlarged liver or spleen
  • Abdominal swelling or fluid build-up
  • White or chalky stool

Should you experience any of these symptoms, it is crucial to pay your doctor a visit for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Liver Cancer Risks Factors and Prevention

Certain factors can increase your chances of developing liver cancer. Some cannot be changed, while others can be managed by making significant lifestyle changes. These risk factors include:

  • Gender. Liver cancer is more common in males than in females.
  • Use of tobacco products
  • Unhealthy weight or obesity
  • Certain drugs, such as anabolic steroids
  • Infection with Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C
  • Liver cirrhosis
  • Diabetes
  • Exposure to a toxic compound called aflatoxin
  • Exposure to chemicals like arsenic, thorium dioxide, and vinyl chloride
  • Rare metabolic disorders, such as hereditary tyrosinemia and Wilson disease

There is no way to prevent liver cancer completely. However, reducing or eliminating alcohol consumption, limiting tobacco use, treating underlying conditions, maintaining a healthy body weight, and getting a Hepatitis B vaccination may help lower the risk. To prevent contracting hepatitis C, using a condom during sex may help reduce the possibility of infection.

Detection and Diagnosis

An early liver cancer diagnosis improves the chances of survival. First, a doctor will ask questions about medical history to rule out any potential risk factors for liver cancer. Then, he or she will conduct a physical examination, focusing on two strong indicators of liver problems: swelling in the abdomen and any yellow coloring in the whites of the eyes (jaundice).

Following these signs, if a doctor suspects liver cancer, they will run further tests, including a biopsy and laparoscopy, blood tests, examinations for viral hepatitis, and imaging scans (CT or MRI scan).
