Important Information To Know About Liver Cancer

The liver plays an important role in the body because all blood in the system passes through it. While acting as a filter for blood, it has several functions, including eliminating toxins and converting nutrients into useful forms. When cancer cells are in the blood, the liver is an easy target for infestation. As a result, many individuals acquire liver cancer metastatically after it spreads from other areas, although it can also originate in the liver itself.

Symptoms of liver cancer are similar to other medical conditions and other forms of cancer as well, so it is important to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis. Often in the early stages of liver cancer, symptoms are not present, but later they will often include abdominal pain, bloating, a lump in the abdomen around the liver, a full feeling like after consuming a large meal (but without consuming a large meal), weight loss, fatigue, weakness, nausea and vomiting, jaundice, light-colored feces, dark urine, and fever. These symptoms can lead to serious conditions, and early diagnosis of liver cancer is critical for treatment and survival.
