Liver cancer. Coloured axial computed tomography (CT) scan through a liver (green, upper left) and secondary (metastatic) liver cancer (brown). This slice section, from a male patient, is seen from below with the front of the body at top and the spine (white) at lower centre. The liver is the largest gland in the body, and has many vital roles that include metabolising nutrients and detoxifying the blood. This makes treatment of liver cancer difficult, and the prognosis is poor.
