Liver Cancer

Liver Cancer

USC Surgery / Conditions / Liver Cancer

The liver is a large organ on the right side of the belly that filters blood coming from the digestive tract before it goes to the rest of the body. Liver cancer (also called hepatic cancer) often does not show symptoms in the early stages. Later-stage liver cancer symptoms include belly pain, vomiting, weight loss and yellowed skin.

Treatment includes removal of part of the liver (liver resection). It also may include liver transplant, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
