  2. 2. Liver Cancer Treatment at World Class Hospitals in India SafeMedTrip.com Get Free opinion from Top Doctors in India: Post a Query Visit us at: www.safemedtrip.com Liver cancer is cancer that begins in the cells of your liver. Your liver is a football-sized organ that sits in the upper right portion of your abdomen, beneath your diaphragm and above your stomach. Liver cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in the world. Not all cancers that affect the liver are considered liver cancer. Cancer that begins in another area of the body, such as the colon, lung or breast, and then spreads to the liver is called metastatic cancer, rather than liver cancer. And this type of cancer is named after the organ in which it began — such as metastatic colon cancer to describe cancer that begins in the colon and spreads to the liver.

It is a reddish brown muscular organ that lies in the right side of the abdominal cavity. When the Liver or Hepatic cancer originates in the cells of the liver, it is then called as Primary liver cancer. •There are two main types: hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma. •HCC occurs frequently in people with liver disease called cirrhosis. •Cholangiocarcinoma starts in the cells lining the bile duct. •Angiosarcoma is a rare liver cancer starting in the blood vessels. 2) Secondary Liver cancer •It is cancer that started in another part of the body but has spread (metastasized) to the liver. •Most common types to spread to liver start in the digestive system (bowel, pancreas, esophagus, stomach). •Melanoma, breast, ovary, kidney or lung cancers also commonly spread to liver.

Get Free opinion from Top Doctors in India: Post a Query Visit us at: www.safemedtrip.com SafeMedTrip.com How is Liver Cancer Diagnosed? •Blood tests: To check your general health and check for a chemical usually found in increased levels in people with primary liver cancer. •Ultrasound: A picture of the liver is taken using sound waves. •Computed Tomography (CT) Scan: A specialised x-ray taken from many different angles to build a three-dimensional (3-D) picture of the body. •Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Similar to a CT scan, but uses a powerful magnet and magnetic field instead of x-rays to build an image of the body. •Liver Biopsy: A small piece of liver tissue is removed with a needle and examined for cancer cells. •Laparoscopy: A small cut in the lower abdomen is made and this allows a thin mini- telescope (laparoscope) to be inserted to look at the liver and take a sample of liver tissue. •Needle Biopsy: Needle biopsy, also called image-guided biopsy, is usually performed using a (MR) to guide the procedure. In many cases, needle biopsies are performed with the aid of equipment that creates a computer-generated image and allows radiologists to see an area inside the body from various angles.
  5. 5. Nonsurgical Treatments for Liver Cancer at World Class Hospitals in India 1) Chemoembolization: Chemoembolization is a minimally invasive treatment for liver cancer that can be used when there is too much tumor to treat with radiofrequency ablation (RFA), when the tumor is in a location that cannot be treated with RFA, or in combination with RFA or other treatments. In this the anticancer drug is given along with another substance that blocks the hepatic artery. (artery supplying the liver). Thus the anticancer drug is gets concentrated in the cancerous portion of the liver. Also since this area does not get fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients due to blocked hepatic artery, the tumor slowly shrinks and dies away. SafeMedTrip.com 2) Radiofrequency Ablation: For inoperable liver tumors, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) offers a nonsurgical, localized treatment that kills the tumor cells with heat, while sparing the healthy liver tissue. Thus, this treatment is much easier on the patient than systemic therapy. 3) Cryosurgery: It is a treatment that uses an instrument to freeze and destroy abnormal tissue, such as cancerous cells. This type of treatment is also called Cryotherapy. The doctor may use ultrasound to guide the instrument. Get Free opinion from Top Doctors in India: Post a Query Visit us at: www.safemedtrip.com

The procedure may be done once or twice a week. Usually local anesthesia is used, but if the patient has many tumors in the liver, general anesthesia may be needed. 5) Hyperthermia Therapy: Hyperthermia therapy is a type of treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures to damage and kill cancer cells or to make cancer cells more sensitive to the effects of radiation and certain anticancer drugs. Because some cancer cells are more sensitive to heat than normal cells are, the cancer cells die and the tumor shrinks. SafeMedTrip.com 6) Biologic Therapy: Biologic therapy is a treatment that uses the patient’s immune system to fight cancer. Substances made by the body or made in a laboratory are used to boost, direct, or restore the body’s natural defenses against cancer. This type of cancer treatment is also called biotherapy or immunotherapy.
