General | Latest Info

Liver Cancer is type of cancer that starts in liver. Cancer starts when cells in body begin to grow out of control. To learn about how cancers start and spread, see What Is Cancer? To understand Liver Cancer, it helps to know about normal structure and function of liver. Liver Is Made Up Mainly Of Cells Called Hepatocytes. It also has other types of cells, including cells that line its blood vessels and cells that line small tubes in liver called bile ducts. Bile ducts carry bile from liver to gallbladder or directly to intestines. You cannot live your liver. It has many important functions: it breaks down and stores many OF nutrients absorbed from intestine that your body needs to function. Some nutrients must be changed in liver before they can be used for energy or to build and repair body tissues. It makes most OF clotting factors that keep from bleeding too much when you are cut or injure. It delivers bile into intestines to help absorb nutrients. It breaks down alcohol, drugs, and toxic waste in blood, which then passes from body through urine and stool. Different types OF cells in liver can form several types of malignant and benign tumors. These tumors have different causes, treated differently, and have different prognosis.

The liver

Nodular cirrhosis with severe cholestasis is typically found at time of biopsy or autopsy. It is not unusual to see nodules separate by wide bands of bland fibrosis containing proliferating bile ducts and multinucleated giant cells. Central vein sclerosis with thickened venular and lumens either stenosed or occluded by fibrous tissue is also common. Siderosis is by definition, significant. Within tubular hepatocytes, hemosiderin apical cytoplasm adjacent to bile canaliculi. In hepatic giant iron and bile are more diffusely distribute. Extramedullary erythropoiesis, usually obviously apparent in neonate,s is found only in sinusoids of nodules in NH and probably contributes to anemia in these patients. Although less common, hepatocellular carcinoma has been reported in cases of NH at time of or autopsy, reinforcing prenatal onset of this condition. Whereas average LIVER weight is lower in NH patients than in normal individuals even when adjustments are made for gestational age and body mean hepatic iron concentration is higher in NH than in comparable controls. Knisely found that hepatic iron concentration in patients with NH ranges from 240 to 38 200 g / g of dry weight, whereas that healthy neonate was 250 g / g of dry weight. It must be note, however, that despite clearly elevated LIVER iron in most cases, range overlaps with normal perinatal iron concentrations in some subjects. Furthermore, there are conditions other than NH in which iron content is in LIVER and other nonreticuloendothelial organs. This elevated iron content in other organs is particularly likely with cirrhosis and indicate shunt siderosis similar to that frequently seen in adult LIVER Disease.

What is focal nodular hyperplasia?

Focal nodular hyperplasia liver lesions are second most common benign liver lesion. Majority Of Cases Are Found In Premenopausal Women Between Ages Of 20 And 50 Years, With About 10 To 20 Percent Of All Cases Occurring In Men. Some believe prolonged use of oral contraceptive pills may possibly contribute to development of FNH liver lesions; However, there is considerable amount of debate with regard to this claim. Focal nodular hyperplasia liver lesions are usually asymptomatic, rarely or bleed, and do not present risk of malignant transformation. However, differentiating focal nodular hyperplasia liver lesions from other liver tumors be very difficult. Risk Of Misdiagnosis Is High With FNH Liver Lesions. They are most commonly as hepatic adenoma liver lesions or intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma. Accurate diagnosis is critical to avoid unnecessary surgery, or other invasive treatment methods. Experience as subspecialty radiologist is best way to ensure accurate diagnosis.
