Cover image for lecture: Hepatocellular Carcinoma: Liver Cancer

Lecture Overview

HCC is the fifth-most common tumour worldwide and second-most common cause of cancer-related death, but is this figure grossly under-reported? This deadly cancer requires aggressive management and treatment, with patients often thinking a transplant is their only option. But, in a world with a limited supply of livers for donation, what other options are out there?
