Researchers in different countries recently carried out a study on liver cancer. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a cancer that affects the liver primarily and it begins in the liver cells. Unfortunately viral hepatitis is the main risk factor for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
Recent studies have examined liver cancer at the molecular level, which may lead to better treatments of this cancer, which represents a potential relief for many people suffering from hepatitis B and hepatitis C in the advanced stage.
Hepatocellular carcinoma is a type of cancer that occurs when liver cells undergo mutations in their DNA – genetic material that contains the instructions for every chemical process in the body…
DNA mutations cause alterations in these instructions, which may cause the growth of out of control cells, resulting in the formation of a cancerous tumor.
