In brief: Liver damage

The most common cause of liver cancer is viral hepatitis.
The 2 most prevalent types are hepatitis b and c. After years of chronic infection, the risk of cancer goes up. Also, chronic damage from alcohol overuse, and to some extent chronic damage from fatty liver can also cause cancer. The liver is also the site of cancer metastasis from other cancers, such as breast and colon.
