Liver is one of the most robust body organs in human body. Liver is approximately of the size of a footbal and is located in the upper right side of the abdomen. It is responsible for production and excretion of bile, excretion of bilrubin, cholestrol, metabolism of fats, protien, carbohydrates, activitation of enzymes and most importantly storage of glycogen, vitamins and minerals.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis of hepatocelluar carcinoma or primary liver cancer in India is done through multi modalities and methods. However, the best way to start the diagnosis of any disease is to consult the right doctor or surgeon. Our team of liver cancer surgeons is a strong believer in the fact that numbers in the reports are of no use till the time they correlate with the symptoms. For the correct and best diagnosis our team of liver cancer specialists may advise certain blood tests including AFP along with some radiological investigations like Ultrasound, Fibroscan, CT Scan or MRI. Mostly a MRI or CT scan with contrast is the best way to diagnose a liver cancer.

 

TREATMENT &
COST

Once it is diagnosed that the patient is having cancer then next step is to do the staging of the cancer. Staging of the cancer is defined as stage 1 to 4.

Diagnosing a hepatocellular carcinoma of liver at early stage would be the best chance that the patient may have to escape with a liver ressection surgery.
