Depends: Depends on how advanced it is, my friend. Early hcc may be treated successfully, maybe even cured, with surgery but therapy for more advanced ones is directed mostly to shrink and control the cancer rather than curing it. It also depends on how healthy the patient is in general. Idealy should be managed in a multidisciplinary setting (surgeons, transplant specialists, gi, and medical oncologist).
