In brief: Several risk factors

There are several risk factors for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma.
By far, the most common causes are chronic infection with either hepatitis b or c. Alcoholic cirrhosis is another leading cause. Other less common risk factors include advanced age, diabetes, and certain liver disorders.
