Liver Cancer



What is liver cancer?

The liver is situated on the upper right quadrant of the abdomen, beneath the ribs. The liver performs various vital functions, such as the synthesis of bile. It helps in the metabolism of medications and toxins. It also stores glucose in the form of glycogen and provides energy when a person is not eating.


The exact cause of liver cancer remains unknown. However, several risk factors increase the risk of liver cancer. Further, people with no risk factors may also develop liver cancer.

The cells store vital information in the DNA. One of the information is the frequency of cell division. Mutations in the DNA of the liver cells alter this information resulting in uncontrolled cell division. It results in the formation of cell mass or tumor. This tumor can potentially spread to other organs during advanced liver cancer stages.

Some people may develop liver cancer because of their family history and inherit the genes. However, most liver cancer occurs due to acquired gene mutations. People with hepatitis B and hepatitis C infection are also at elevated risk for developing liver cancer. Environmental factors, such as exposure to toxic chemicals or gases, also increase the risk of liver cancer.
