About Your Care and Condition
In many cases, the cause of liver cancer is unknown, but it is associated with some risk factors like hepatitis or cirrhosis. Symptoms are rare in the early stages, but unplanned weight loss, abdominal pain or yellow skin/eyes may occur. In the U.S., about 30,000 people are diagnosed with liver cancer each year. Early detection means a more positive prognosis.
Our comprehensive multispecialty team diagnoses and treats more upper GI cancer cases than any other hospital in the region. High volumes also indicate better outcomes for more complicated surgical procedures.
