Liver cancer. Coloured axial computed tomography (CT) scan through the abdomen of a patient with cancer of the liver. The liver is at centre left, with normal liver tissue in dark red. The cancer is the pink areas within the liver. The cancer is a hepatocellular carcinoma of the right lobe of the liver. The malignant tumour has spread into the liver's right portal vein. Cancer cells divide in an uncontrolled fashion and migrate to invade other tissues. Treatment is with surgery if the cancer is still localised, and chemotherapy and radiotherapy if it has spread.
