Liver cancer is a type of tumour that originally develops in the liver. It is a very common cancer worldwide and usually tends to appear in people with chronic liver disease. It requires an early diagnosis to maintain the possibility of applying a curative treatment. As such, regular ultrasound check-ups are vitally important in patients at risk of developing liver cancer.
