Understanding Liver Cancer
Liver cancer is a serious condition that affects millions of people worldwide
The liver is the largest internal organ in the human body, and one of the most vital to life, so it is important to keep it healthy and disease-free. It is responsible for over 500 functions, including storing nutrients, removing waste products and worn-out cells from the blood, filtering and processing chemicals in food, alcohol, and medications, and producing bile, a solution that helps digest fats and eliminate waste products.
The percentage of Americans developing liver cancer has been rising slowly for several decades. According to the American Cancer Society, liver cancer incidence rates have more than tripled since 1980, while the death rates have more than doubled during this time. Several risk factors, including cirrhosis, hepatitis B or hepatitis C, obesity, type 2 diabetes, etc., and an increase in unhealthy lifestyle choices, are being attributed to the rise of liver cancer.
Our centers offer radiation therapy to treat liver cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays to destroy cancer cells and may be helpful in treating people with pain because of large liver cancers, liver cancer that has spread to other areas such as the brain or bones, or liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery.
