liver cancer without cirrhosis...
Aug 6, 2005

Good morning

I know it s unhappily possible to have liver cancer without cirrhosis in Hep B but can we know how often it happens ?? thank you And is it happening in a normal liver or only in only in livers already with little problems

Response from Dr. McGovern

In untreated patients, the annual incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) differs according to the initial characteristics of the patient population. In carriers without cirrhosis the risk varies with geographical region from 0.2 to 0.6 per cent per year.

HCC usually occurs in patients who have underlying hepatitis.

Dr. McGovern

Is Hepatitis related to HIV?
