How do doctors diagnose liver cancer?

If your doctor or healthcare provider notices that you have symptoms that could be caused by liver cancer during a physical exam, you’ll be referred to a specialist for tests.

What increases your risk of liver cancer?

Your risk of getting liver cancer depends on many things, including age, genetics, certain conditions, lifestyle and environmental factors. Factors that can put you at risk of developing liver cancer include:

  • Age > 60 years
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Exposure to aflatoxins – poisons produced by molds that grow on grains, peanuts, and corn.
  • Gallstones
  • Chronic infection with hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus
  • Cirrhosis of liver
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Certain inherited liver diseases such as hemochromatosis, tyrosinemia, and Wilson’s disease, etc
  • A family history of liver cancer.

What to do/know when you’re diagnosed with liver cancer?

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with liver cancer, you want to make sure your cancer care team chooses the most advanced, effective treatment plan for you. Perhaps, a cancer diagnosis can take you for an emotional ride, but it’s important that you have open, honest discussions with your care team to make informed treatment and life decisions. Here are some questions/things to consider when you’re told you have liver cancer and when deciding on a treatment plan:

  • What type of liver cancer do I have?
  • What is the stage of cancer?
  • Has cancer spread to other parts of my body?
  • How well is my liver functioning?
  • Should I seek a second opinion or see other doctors?
  • What are my treatment choices, and will I need a liver transplant?
  • How soon do I begin my treatment?
  • What side effects/risks should I expect?
  • What if the treatment doesn’t work or if cancer comes back?

Apart from these examples, you might want to list down a few things of your own. Also, choose to have a positive attitude and get informed. Reach out and seek support from friends, family and those who’re going through similar experiences or have gone through this critical phase of life.

What are the complications of liver cancer?

Liver cancer can lead to a number of complications, including:

  • Bile duct obstruction
  • Bleeding
  • Anaemia
  • Portal hypertension
  • High blood calcium
  • Hepatorenal syndrome
  • Hepatic encephalopathy
  • Ascites

How can I prevent liver cancer?

It’s not possible to completely prevent liver cancer, but you can reduce your risk by taking some precautionary steps:

  • Get vaccinated against hepatitis B
  • Take measures to prevent hepatitis C – such as using a condom during sex, not sharing needles or personal care items, being cautious about tattoos and piercings, etc.
  • Make changes to reduce your risk of cirrhosis – drinking alcohol in moderation, and maintaining a healthy weight.
  • Stay away from tobacco
  • Adopt a healthy lifestyle by eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly.
  • Talk to your doctor or healthcare provider about liver cancer screening, especially if you have conditions that increase your risk – liver cirrhosis, hepatitis B or C, diabetes, obesity, etc.

What is the prognosis for liver cancer?

While successful liver transplants can cure the disease, the problem is not all patients who need a transplant will be healthy enough to undergo the procedure or able to find a donor. Perhaps, often people come to know about their liver cancer at a late stage when their illness prevents surgery. Hence, regular screening for liver cancer is so important for people with risk factors. Liver cancer remains a life-threatening disease, although there are treatments available to help improve quality of life and prolong survival.
