Hepatocellular Cancer

Issue: 
Pages: 
273–6
Synopsis: 
Hepatocellular cancer (HCC) occurs in the setting of chronic hepatitis B infection and cirrhosis of the liver. Most patients may already have a liver disease, hence the onset of HCC may be missed until it reaches an advanced stage. This article will review the presentation, diagnosis and treatment modalities of this disease.
