What Is Liver Cancer?

The liver is situated above the stomach and beneath the diaphragm in the upper right region of the human abdomen. It filters the blood, transforming the chemicals into more easily absorbed forms that the body can use. Since the liver receives all blood circulating through it, any cancer cells that may infiltrate the bloodstream can access the liver. If liver disease is not treated in a timely manner, it may be fatal.

Two things could happen to it. When cancer cells originate in the liver itself, it is referred to as primary cancer. The term "secondary liver cancer" describes a state in which the disease metastasizes. It is known as secondary or metastatic when the tumor cells travel from other afflicted sites to the liver.

What Causes Liver Cancer?

The causes of liver cancer are many and are diagnosed first by the ayurvedic cancer specialists.

  • The reasons behind the development of liver cancer can be various. Birth defects, exposure to infection due to conditions like Hepatitis B and C, and alcohol abuse are common factors leading to cancer.
  • Hereditary conditions like hemochromatosis that involve the presence of iron in excess amounts can also cause liver cancer.
  • Most people with liver cancer can be found dealing with the medical condition of cirrhosis. Further, the liver could undergo permanent damage as well due to hemochromatosis and Hepatitis B and C
  • In addition, conditions related to obesity and fatty liver can result in cancer. Diabetes that causes blood sugar to fluctuate also increases the risk of liver cancer.
  • DNA mutations can occur in the different types of liver cells. Instructions for cell proteins are provided by DNA. The alterations result in uncontrollably dividing cells, which eventually gives rise to tumors.
  • Liver cancer is also influenced by exposure to chemicals such as aflatoxins. These materials are made by molds that start on crops with inadequate supply. Common crops like grains and nuts are susceptible to this poison and may find their way into food products that are made from them.

Types of Liver Cancer

The various types of liver cancer are as follows:

  • Hepatocellular Carcinoma

    It is the most commonly occurring liver cancer that majorly occurs in people dealing with chronic liver diseases. It is a primary malignancy of liver cells. Accumulation of excess fat in the liver and alcohol abuse are also factors that lead to cancer.

  • Cholangiocarcinoma

    This kind of cancer is one of the rarest types and develops in the bile duct. Bile generally aids in the process of food digestion, or more specifically, it emulsifies fat. It is typically diagnosed when it has spread to other areas, which complicates and worsens the prognosis.

  • Angiosarcoma

    This kind of cancer develops in the lining of blood cells present in the liver. It is a rarely occurring cancer that holds the ability to affect other body organs as well.

Some of the benign tumors of the liver are hepatic adenoma, cysts, hemangioma, lipoma, focal nodular hyperplasia, leiomyoma, and fibroma.

What Could Be The Possible Complications?

Hepatic encephalopathy, portal vein thrombosis, detrimental ascites, variceal bleeding, obstructive jaundice, and pyogenic liver abscess are among the liver consequences of hepatocellular carcinoma
