Generally, liver cancer does not exhibit any symptoms in the early stages, so it becomes difficult to detect the disease. As cancer grows, symptoms like pain in the upper abdomen, weight loss without trying, swollen abdomen, weakness, loss of appetite and feelings of fullness, regular fever, yellow skin and eyes and dark urine from jaundice, nausea, and vomiting starts to appear.
With the advancement of medical science, many treatment procedures are practiced in India to control and cure liver cancer. The cancer treatment procedure depends on the size and location of the cancerous tumor, the stage of the disease, whether cancer has spread to other oranges, and the patient's overall health. Surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy are the main treatment procedures used to treat adult primary liver cancer.
Every year, Many international patients come to this country to avail of low-cost liver cancer surgery in India.
The surgical treatment may be conducted following any of the two procedures, either removal of the affected part of the liver (Hepatectomy) or liver transplantation. Surgery is one of the most successful liver cancer treatment. A hepatectomy can be done only if the cancer is limited to one part of the liver. When the cancer is confined to the liver, a liver transplant can be a good option for the cure.
The next effective treatment procedure for liver cancer is radiation therapy. It is the use of high-energy x-rays or other particles to kill cancer cells. External-beam radiation therapy is a type of radiation given from a machine outside the body. For internal radiation therapy, radioactive beads are placed into the artery that supplies the tumor with blood like chemoembolization. Each radiation therapy has its pros and cons. The general side effects from radiation therapy may include fatigue, mild skin reactions, upset stomach, and loose bowel movements.
Chemotherapy is the use of systematic drugs to kill cancer cells. It can be of two types; Systemic chemotherapy treatment, where the drug is injected into a vein, enters the bloodstream and travels through the whole body to kill cancer cells. And next is regional chemotherapy, where a small pump is placed inside the body to deliver anticancer drugs directly to the blood vessels that feed the tumor.
