Liver cancer signs and symptoms can also be caused by other conditions. If you experience these symptoms, see your doctor for testing to determine the cause. Hard lump on right side just below the rib cage, discomfort in the same area, pain around the right shoulder blade, unexplained weight loss, yellow skin and eyes, unusual tiredness, nausea or loss of appetite. For more information, see these top-selling books on Liver Cancer Symptoms, Prevention and Treatment.
While no direct cause has been established some of the significant factors that increase the risk of liver cancer are family history, hepatitis and cirrhosis. A factor that increases the risk of cancer generally is a weakened immune system due to illness, surgery, medications or poor nutrition.
The prognosis depends on whether both lobes of the liver are affected, the size of the tumor/stage of the cancer, whether you have cirrhosis and your general health. At the early stages, surgery can be used to remove the tumor or the whole liver if a transplant is available. If the cancer is advanced and spread to other organs, the treatment generally changes to providing comfort care, along with trials you may wish to participate in.
