Can liver cancer be prevented?

Prevention of cirrhosis, which is the underlying cause of liver cancer, will help in preventing the development of liver cancer.

Routine surveillance for liver cancer by performing ultrasound of the liver every six months in patients with a cirrhotic liver will detect early liver cancer.

Where can you learn more about liver cancer?

Patients can find many resources to learn more about cancer. A popular source is the American Cancer Society. Another is the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, which has a lot of information for consumers on resources and support groups.
