Liver Is Largest Organ Inside Body And Is Located Under Right Ribs And Beneath Right Lung. Liver has several functions. It secretes bile into intestines to absorb fats, breaks down and stores nutrients, manufactures clotting factors needed to stop bleeding, and breaks down agents, like alcohol and drugs. Once toxic agents are broken down, they can be eliminated from body through urine or stool. One of causes of cirrhosis, scarring of liver, is alcoholism. Person Cannot Live Without Liver, So Liver Shuts Down Or Liver Failure Is Fatal. Hepatitis is inflammation of liver, which can progress to scarring or Liver Cancer. Hepatitis can be caused by toxic substances, or autoimmune diseases. Common viruses that cause hepatitis are referred to as types, B, C, D, and E. It's possible to prevent hepatitis with vaccines available for types, B, and E. Metastatic Cancer is cancer that has spread from place where it first starts to another place in body. Metastatic Cancer in liver is condition in which cancer from other organs has spread through bloodstream to liver. Here, liver cells are not what become cancerous. Livers have become site to which cancer that starts elsewhere has spread. Metastatic Cancer has same name and same type of cancer cells as original Cancer. Most Common Cancers That Spread To Liver Are Breast, Colon, Bladder, Kidney, Ovary, Pancreas, Stomach, Uterus, And Lungs. Metastatic Liver Cancer is rare condition that occurs when cancer originates in liver and spreads to other organs in body. Some people with metastatic tumors do have symptoms. Their metastases are found by - rays, CT scans, ultrasounds, or other tests. Enlargement of liver or jaundice can indicate cancer has spread to liver. Most people who get Liver Cancer get it in setting of chronic liver disease, which scars liver and increases risk for Liver Cancer. Conditions that cause cirrhosis are alcohol use / abuse, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C. Causes of Liver Cancer may be linked environmental, dietary, or lifestyle factors. For example, in November 2014, researchers University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, found that long - term exposure to triclosan, common ingredient in soaps and detergents, causes Liver fibrosis and Cancer in laboratory mice. Although triclosan has not been proven to cause human Liver Cancer, it is currently under scrutiny by to determine whether it has negative health impacts. Incidence rates of hepatocellular cancer are rising in United States due to increasing prevalence of cirrhosis caused by chronic hepatitis C and steatohepatitis. Cirrhosis of liver due to any cause is risk factor for Liver Cancer.

Treatment

Any liver cancer difficult to cure. Primary liver cancer is rarely detectable early, it is most treatable. Secondary or liver cancer is hard to treat because it has already spread. Liver's Complex Network Of Blood Vessels And Bile Ducts Makes Surgery Difficult. Most treatments concentrate on making patients feel better and live longer. Patients with early - stage tumors that can be removed surgically have best chance of long - term survival. Unfortunately, most liver cancers are inoperable at time it's diagnose, either because cancer is too advanced or liver is too diseased to permit surgery. In some patients, chemotherapy is given directly into liver to reduce tumors to size that may make surgery possible. This may be do without chemotherapy in some cases, using ethanol instead. Patients in remission must be monitored closely potential recurrence.

Recurrent liver cancer

Fiveyear Survival Rate Of 20 - 40 Percentage Can Be Achieved With Resection Of Liver Metastases From Colorectal Carcinoma, Whereas It Is Below 2 Percentage In Untreated Patients. After resection, liver metastases of carcinoma recur in about 75 percentage of patients. As yet, reports of prolonged survival after potentially curative resection of liver and adjuvant systemic or locoregional chemotherapy are not convincing. Essential for local therapy is that liver is only site of metastases; in 22 percentage of cases, metastases are found in lung and in 6 - 7 percentage in skeleton. Recurrence of liver metastases after resection often indicates systemic manifestation metastatic disease. Furthermore, locoregional of primary tumor decisively affects outcome. Hence, indications for surgical resection of primary tumor are clearly limited to isolated liver metastases after complete diagnostic staging, and to following conditions: isolate, resectable liver metastases, or when only 50 percentage of volume of one lobe is involved and extrahepatic metastases and any local recurrence of primary tumor in surgical field have been exclude.
