Liver cancer treatment services offered by us –

  • Surgery: Surgery involves making a large incision in the abdomen to access the liver directly. It may be used for various purposes in liver cancer treatment, such as tumor resection (removing part of the liver containing the tumor), liver resection (removing a portion of the liver), or liver transplant (replacing the diseased liver with a healthy one). Liver transplantation is an option for some patients with liver cancer, particularly those with early-stage tumors or with underlying liver diseases. During a liver transplant, the diseased liver is removed and replaced with a healthy liver from a donor. Liver transplantation offers the potential for a cure in select cases, but it requires careful patient selection and lifelong immunosuppressive therapy to prevent rejection of the transplanted organ.
  • Trans arterial Chemoembolization (TACE): TACE is a minimally invasive procedure used primarily for treating liver tumors that cannot be removed surgically. It involves injecting chemotherapy drugs directly into the blood vessels supplying the tumor, followed by blocking these vessels to cut off the tumor's blood supply. TACE can help shrink tumors and alleviate symptoms in some cases.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA): RFA is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat liver tumors by delivering high-frequency electrical currents directly into the tumor tissue, which generates heat and destroys the cancer cells. RFA is often used for small liver tumors or as a palliative treatment to alleviate symptoms in patients who are not candidates for surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is liver cancer?

Liver cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the cells of the liver. It can manifest as hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), which is the most common form, or other types such as cholangiocarcinoma. Factors such as chronic liver diseases, hepatitis B or C infections, alcohol abuse, and certain genetic conditions may contribute to the development of liver cancer.

Who treats liver cancer?

Liver cancer is typically treated by a team of healthcare professionals, and the specific specialists involved may depend on the individual case. Oncologists, hepatologists, and gastroenterologists are the primary healthcare professionals involved in treating liver cancer.

What is the main cause of liver cancer?

The main cause of liver cancer is often attributed to the development of chronic liver diseases, particularly cirrhosis. Chronic infections with hepatitis B or C viruses, long-term excessive alcohol consumption, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are significant contributors to the progression of liver damage and the subsequent development of liver cancer. In cirrhosis, healthy liver tissue is replaced by scar tissue, increasing the risk of malignant transformation.

Can liver cancer be cured successfully?

The chances of successfully curing liver cancer depend on factors such as the stage at which it is diagnosed, overall health of the patient, and treatment options. In some cases, especially if detected early, surgical interventions, transplantation, or other therapies may offer a chance of cure. However, outcomes vary, and advanced stages of liver cancer may be more challenging to treat successfully.

Can you live a long life after liver cancer?

Survival and life expectancy after liver cancer depend on various factors, including the stage at diagnosis, treatment effectiveness, overall health, and individual response to therapy. Some individuals, especially those diagnosed at an early stage or successfully treated, can live a long life. However, advanced stages may present more challenges, and outcomes vary. Regular medical follow-ups and adherence to a healthcare plan can contribute to a better quality of life and long-term survival.

What is the most successful treatment for liver cancer?

The most successful treatment for liver cancer depends on factors such as the stage of cancer, overall health of the patient, and tumor characteristics. Treatment options may include surgery, liver transplantation, ablation therapies, and targeted drug therapies. The optimal approach is determined on a case-by-case basis, often through a combination of treatments tailored to the individual's specific situation.
