Risk Factors for Liver Cancer

There is no way to know for sure if you're going to get liver cancer. Certain factors can make one person more likely to get liver cancer than another person. These are called risk factors. However, just because a person has one or more risk factors does not mean that person will get liver cancer. In fact, a person can have all the risk factors and still not get the disease. On the other hand, a person can have no risk factors and still get liver cancer.

Still, talk to your doctor about how to lower your risk if you have any of the following risk factors.
