None: Primary liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma (hcc), has no symptoms early on. But most cases of hcc are associated with cirrhosis, the symptoms and signs of which include jaundice, muscle wasting, hepatosplenomegaly, variceal gasteointestinal bleeding, encephalopathy and the development of ascites. Pts with cirrhosis should be screened every 6 mo for hcc with a liver us and an AFP check.
