Yes it can: Swelling in the legs can occur due to many different liver ailments such as liver failure, blood clots in the legs or blood clots in the veins of the abdomen as well as veins in the liver itself as these veins are often compressed or invaded by the liver cancer resulting in swelling in the abdomen and in the legs..
