Liver cancers are increasing in prevalence worldwide. Unfortunately, most patients with liver tumors are not candidates for surgical resection or liver transplantation and require interventional oncology therapy. Interventional oncologists provide several minimally invasive options for liver cancer treatment, most of which are performed on an outpatient basis. Your cancer type, location, and whether it has spread are considered before therapy. A multidisciplinary approach that includes surgical and medical oncology is vital in determining the appropriate treatment choice.
Primary liver cancer:
- Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)
- Cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer)
Secondary liver cancer:
- Colorectal cancer
- Neuroendocrine (also known as carcinoid)
- Breast cancer
- Other liver dominant metastatic cancers including pancreas, thyroid, and melanoma
ARA interventional oncologists perform several image-guided techniques to treat liver tumors that are not candidates for curative surgery.
