In brief: Yes

It is on the rise because more patients with hepatitis c are getting older. So the incidence of cirrhosis and liver cancer are increasing.

In brief: Yes

Liver cancer incidence (or HCC) is on the rise in the US due to the epidemic of hepatitis C, the migration of immigrants with hepatitis B to the US, and the epidemic of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
All are risk factors for HCC.
