Treatment Options for Liver Cancer

Criteria for Choosing a Treatment

Specific treatment for liver cancer (both hepatoma and metastatic liver cancer) will be determined by your physician based on:

Treatments for Hepatoma

Treatments for Metastatic Liver Cancer

New Treatments for Liver Cancer

There are also other types of treatments for liver cancer, including targeted therapies, cryotherapy, ethanol ablation, radiofrequency ablation, intra-arterial chemoembolization, and liver transplantation. Doctors are always finding new ways to treat liver cancer. These new methods are tested in clinical trials. Before beginning treatment, ask your doctor about any clinical trials you should consider.
