Dr. Kennedy Childhood liver cancer is a primary cancer of the liver (cancer that starts in the liver) in children, a relatively rare malignancy in children. There are 2 main types of primary liver cancer in children - hepatoblastoma and hepatocellular carcinoma. Hepatoblastomas usually occur before 3 years of age, whereas the incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma varies little with age between 0 and 19 years. The overall survival rate for children with hepatoblastoma is 70% but is only 25% for hepatocellular carcinoma.
