Hepatocellular Carcinoma - 

This is the most frequent type of liver cancer.

Hepatocellular carcinoma is most common in persons with liver disease, particularly chronic hepatitis B and C.

Symptoms do not always develop in the early stages of cancer. Later symptoms include weight loss, upper abdominal pain, and skin discoloration (jaundice).

Surgery, transplant, freezing or heating the cancer cells, and chemotherapy are all possible treatments.
