Liver Cancer


Palliative care

Palliative care is provided to the patient who is diagnosed with a serious medical illness, such as advanced liver cancer. The goal of palliative care is to improve the symptoms of cancer and its treatment and overall quality of life.

  • Alleviating symptoms: Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery are used for managing the symptoms in patients with liver cancer. The surgery is performed to manage biliary compression leading to less risk of liver failure and cholangitis. Similarly, palliative radiation therapy provides relief from pain due to adrenal and bone metastasis.
