Options: The preferred treatment options for early cases are surgical removal and in selected patients liver transplants- these have the best results. For more advanced cases chemotherapy infused into the liver or oral drugs such as sorafenib can be used.

Treating "liver: Cancer" is not a "do-it-yourself" project for the neophyte. First, is it cancer that started in the liver, or cancer from someplace else that moved in and is taking over? Approach night and day difference: the former starts with surgey, the latter may end with surgery but only after many other things are done. Some also lump bile duct tumors with the liver. Don't be foolish.
