Caption

Liver cancer. Illustration of a section through the right lobe of the human liver (red) revealing a massive carcinoma (yellow). A carcinoma is a cancer which develops from epithelial (lining) cells in organs. Here, within the tumour, the cancerous cells are undergoing chaotic division. The liver is situated beneath the heart (top right) and above and to the left of the stomach; also seen is part of the large intestine (at bottom). The liver manufactures vital body chemicals. Cancers originating in the liver can be removed by surgery with a good chance of survival. Cancers which spread to the liver from other areas are invariably fatal.
