Depends on stage: Early liver cancer can be effectively treated by surgical removal. The best candidates for surgical removal are patients whose liver tumor has not spread beyond the liver, the size of the liver tumor is small, and the rest of the liver is healthy enough to withstand an operation. Another excellent option for some patients is liver transplantation. Talk with your doctor about your options.
