Liver cancer

Liver cancer affects the liver, a large organ situated on the upper right side of the abdomen and predominantly covered by the ribcage.  Although many other types of cancers spread to the liver from other parts of the body and are termed ‘metastatic cancer’, liver cancer is cancer that originates in the cells of the liver.  Depending on the type of liver cancer, there may be various possibilities for treatment including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Liver cysts

Liver cysts are fluid-filled sacs that develop in the liver, a large organ located on the right side of the abdomen.  They generally do not give rise to complaints or symptoms and therefore do not require treatment in most cases.  However, if a liver cyst becomes so enlarged that it presses against other surrounding structures, it may cause discomfort or pain.  In such cases, liver cysts may require draining or removal.  Often the cause of liver cysts is unknown, however in rare cases they are associated with other serious underlying diseases or infections.
