The liver plays a key role in how the body stores nutrients and it also helps with digestion and in clearing the body of toxins. Liver cancer originates in the cells of the liver (hepatocellular carcinoma) and if cancer is in other parts of the body and spreads to the liver, it’s labeled liver metasis.
People that have liver cancer may have white, chalky stools, a yellow discoloration in the skin and whites of the eyes, nausea and vomiting, upper abdominal pain, and loss of appetite. This type of cancer is rarely seen in children and teenagers, but it can happen. Chronic infection with Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C, as well as cirrhosis, diabetes, and excessive alcohol consumption can increase the chance of developing liver cancer.
