In brief: Usually it is.
Not all liver tumors are liver cancer.
The treatment of liver cancer depends on the size and number of the tumors, as well as how healthy the rest of the liver is. Patients with early stage liver cancer are often candidates for potentially curative operations. Patients with more advanced liver cancer may be candidates for non-surgical destruction of the tumors versus liver transplantation.
