In brief: Many options

Liver cancer (or hcc) is curable with a liver transplant and in some cases with a partial liver resection surgery (hepatectomy).
There are other treatment modalities including locoregional ablation therapies with tace, rfa, chemical injections, or radioembolization and chemotherapeutic options. Liver cancer is best managed in liver centers with a multidisciplinary approach to hcc.

In brief: Several ways

It can be excised surgically, treated with radiation, and chemotherapy.
It depends on the size and location of the cancer, and whether or not it had spread.

There are multiple approaches to cancer of any type, including liver. The two broad categories are standard medical care (surgery, chemo, etc.
) and holistic (which includes a broad array of choices). I suggest you research both approaches, and focus on outcomes, expenses, side effects, and other factors.
