Liver Cancer: Symptoms and Causes

Seeking treatment for hepatitis B or C infection

There are treatments available for hepatitis B and hepatitis C. Research shows that treatment can reduce the risk of liver cancer.

Ask your doctor about liver cancer screenings

For the general population, liver cancer screenings have not been shown to reduce the risk of dying from liver cancer, and they are generally not recommended. People with conditions that increase the risk of liver cancer might consider screening, eg. eg, people who suffer from:

  • Hepatitis B infection
  • Hepatitis C infection
  • Liver cirrhosis

Talk to your doctor about the pros and cons of screening. Together you can decide if the screening test is right for you based on your risk. Screening tests usually include a blood test and an abdominal ultrasound every six months.
