In brief: Nothing..

...Indeed nothing cures liver cancer once you have it short of a liver transplant but mainly in case you have a primary liver tumor (hepatocellular carcinoma).
If an alcoholic, have hiv, or substance abuser transplant is a contraindication! other treatments, chemo, radiation, partial resection, cryotherapy, heat therapy are basically palliative remedies only.
