Liver Cancer (Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Adult Primary Liver Cancer) Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy Liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma and adult primary liver cancer is a tumor in which the cancer begins during adulthood in cells in the liver. Also called hepatocellular carcinoma. Primary liver cancer is different from cancer that has metastasized (spread) from another place in the body to the liver. Hepatitis B and C appear to be the most significant causes worldwide. People who have both hepatitis B and hepatitis C may be at even higher risk if they consume more than 3 oz. (80 grams) of alcohol a day. A history of a first-degree relative with hepatocellular carcinoma also increases the risk.
