Ivaylo Vazharov

Abstract

Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common primary tumour of the liver. It is characterized by a quick evolution and poor prognosis. The hepatocellular carcinoma is found out in patients with chronic liver diseases, mostly with chronic hepatitis B and C, where the risk is by 100 times higher than in the patients with cirrhosis of other etiology. The treatment is operative. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy don't exert any significant effect. The hepatocellular carcinoma is diagnosed by imaging examination methods. This review shows the opportunities of different contemporary methods for diagnosis of the hepatocellular carcinoma, its staging and subsequent treatment.
