Liver cancer refers to cancer that starts in your liver. Generally, screening for liver cancer is only done for those at increased risk, such as someone with cirrhosis or hepatitis B or C virus.
At Hunterdon Gastroenterology Associates, we do liver function tests to screen for liver cancer for these high-risk patients. While we do not treat liver cancer, should we detect cancer, we provide compassionate counseling and coordinate your care with oncologists and liver and transplant surgeons, as necessary.
If you are in a high-risk group and want to discuss the need for liver cancer screening, please call us.
