Cancer of the Liver
Because the liver filters blood from all parts of the body, cancer cells can lodge in the liver. Cancers that begin in the gastrointestinal tract often spread to the liver.
Carcinogens, certain toxins and chemicals may play a role in the development of cancer in man. Hepatitis B and C viruses are becoming increasingly linked to liver cancer. Cirrhosis of the liver may also lead to liver cancer.

Can Malignant Tumours Be Treated?
This depends on the stage and speed of tumour growth. Survival rates generally decrease as the tumour size increases. Treatments may include chemotherapy, radiotherapy and injection of absolute alcohol into the tumour.
