Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Liver cancer is a cancer arising from the liver or a cancer that has spread to the liver, having originated in other organs (such as the colon, stomach, pancreas, breast, and lung). Liver cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the world. Even when treatments fail to provide much improvement in the liver cancer itself, pain and other signs and symptoms caused by liver cancer can be aggressively treated to improve quality of life. Liver cancer is often deadly, but you can greatly reduce your risk by protecting yourself from hepatitis infection and cirrhosis, the leading causes of the disease. This book introduces the reader to the intriguing, high-tech world of cancer research and treatment, revealing the cutting-edge science that is being harnessed to fight these dread diseases. In addition, the book will show you how to avoid the cancer, what to do if you or a loved one has it, and what the latest treatments and avenues of new research are.
