About Liver Cancer Presentation Transcript

Slide 1 - Liver Cancer : about, causes, risks, treatment, prevention
Slide 2 - What Is Liver Cancer? The liver continuously filters blood that circulates through the body, converting nutrients and drugs absorbed from the digestive tract into ready-to-use chemicals. Because all the blood in the body must pass through it, the liver is unusually accessible to cancer cells traveling in the bloodstream.
Slide 3 - Liver Cancer Risk factors 4th most common cancer in the world Most common primary liver cancer is hepatocellular carcinoma Cirrhosis – primary risk factor Other risk factors : hepatitis C and B Metastatic – more common than primary
Slide 4 - Causes of Liver Cancer Liver cancer may be primary or secondary. Hemochromatosis: This is a rare disease which causes large iron deposits in the body. Hepatitis: Hepatitis leading to liver cancer is usually caused by the hepatitis B or C virus. Toxins: Frequent intake of aflatoxin may lead to liver cancer. Cirrhosis : Drinking too much alcohol may lead to cirrhosis. Your sex : Men are more likely to get hepatocellular carcinoma than women. Your weight : Obesity can increase your risk for hepatocellular carcinoma.
Slide 5 - Liver Cancer Diagnostic Tests Abdominal ultrasound: This test is done so caregivers can see the tissues and organs of your abdomen. Alpha-fetoprotein test: This test measures the level of a substance called alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) in the blood. Liver biopsy: A liver biopsy is when a small piece of your liver is removed and sent to a lab for tests. Computerized tomography scan: This is also called a CT scan. Magnetic resonance imaging test: This test is also called an MRI. It uses magnetic waves to look at the liver.
Slide 6 - Liver Cancer Preventions Do not drink too much alcohol. Prevent liver cancer caused by hepatitis B and C. These viruses are spread through blood transfusions, dirty IV needles of drug abusers, and by unprotected sex. Avoid body piercing and tattooing. Do not use injectable street drugs. If you have a problem with drug abuse, get help by talking to your caregiver.
