It depends: Liver cancer can be successfully treated when caught early(stage 1 and 2). But it requires surgery to excise the tumor or undergo a liver transplant. If neither of these 2 procedures is possible, then there is struggle ahead to control it. Your doctor should be able to explain this to you better.

Progression : Sounds like you are using the TNM classification for liver cancer staging. The risk is progression, worsening liver failure and death. Liver transplant is the only way to survive. Prognosis & survival can be prolonged by minimally invasive interventional radiology procedures - chemo-embolization, radio-embolization, & thermal-ablation. These can also be done as a bridge to liver transplantation!
