Caption: Liver cancer. Gross specimen of a liver with hepatic cancer and cirrhosis. At upper centre is a malignant (cancerous) tumour. Hepatic carcinoma is most commonly associated with hepatitis, usually occurring between 20-50 years after the initial injury to the liver. Once contracted the prognosis for liver cancer is poor and life expectancy is short. Cirrhosis is a degenerative disease that leads to the thickening of the liver tissue and loss of function. It can be caused by toxins, most usually alcohol, metabolic disorders or viral hepatitis. The damage is irreversible but can be slowed or halted with treatment of the underlying condition.
