Treatment of liver cancer

Liver transplant

In the liver transplant, a patient's bad liver is replaced with a healthy liver.  This can only be done when the cancer is not spread to other organs.  Medicines are given after transplantation to prevent the rejection.

Hepatectomy

In Hepatectomy, a part of the liver or entire liver is removed.  This surgery is usually done when the cancer is limited to the liver.  Over time, the extracted part increases again.

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy destroys cancer cells. In this, medicines are given through the veins.  Chemotherapy can be effective in the treatment of liver cancer. Chemotherapy can increase the risk of your infection.
