Liver Cancer

What is Liver Cancer?

Liver cancer is cancer that starts in the cells of the liver, which is located in the abdomen directly above the stomach.

Most cases of liver cancer are metastatic, meaning the cancer forms in another area and spreads to the liver. This happens because the liver has two blood supplies, making it easy for cancer to spread.

Men are two times more likely to develop liver cancer than women.

Common types of liver cancer include:
•Hepatocellular carcinoma (most common type of liver cancer)
•Angiosarcomas and hemangiosarcomas
•Hepatoblastoma (typically found in children younger than four)
