Home Information for DoctorsOverview of Hepatocellular Carcinoma


Primary liver cancer or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the major causes of mortality among patients with chronic liver disease. The incidence of primary liver cancer is rising in India and is poised to become the leading GI cancer. Most Indian patients do not have access to the expensive treatment of HCC as suggested by these guidelines. In addition, awareness on prevention of HCC, screening of the high risk groups, early diagnosis of HCC and various curative as well as palliative treatment options available for HCC is sub-optimal among the primary and secondary healthcare providers in India.
