Liver Cancer

Your liver performs many of the body's most essential functions. The liver breaks down and stores nutrients, aids blood clotting if you're bleeding, and filters out toxic wastes.

When you have liver cancer, those functions can be impaired. If unchecked, the cancer can metastasize and spread to other parts of the body.
