Cancer in the liver can be either a primary or secondary cancer. Primary liver cancer is cancer that starts in the liver, and the most common type in adults is hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Secondary liver cancer is cancer that started in another part of the body and has spread to the liver. It is more common than primary liver cancer in Australia.
The two types of liver cancer are different. If you are unsure if you have primary or secondary liver cancer, check with your doctor.
Cancer Council has specific information on each of these cancers that may help you understand the treatment options and ways to manage any side effects:
