The liver is one of the most important human organs. Therefore, the development of pathologies in it threatens with dangerous consequences. One of the most hazardous liver diseases are neoplasms, which are malignant and benign.
- Primary cancers;
- Primary benign tumors;
- Neoplasms, accompanied by the appearance of metastases.
Determining the category and type of tumor is one of the most critical steps for prescribing a comprehensive treatment.
Yellowness of the skin and cornea of the eyes;
- Loss of appetite and a sharp decrease in weight;
- Stomach ache.
Benign liver tumors are difficult to diagnose diseases since this type of pathology rarely causes clinical signs. As a rule, such neoplasms are discovered accidentally: during routine examinations or during an analysis of a patient who has sought medical help on an entirely different issue.
Liver cancer also does not always manage to be treated at the initial stages, since the disease often proceeds without pronounced symptoms, and many patients do not consider it necessary to consult doctors.
If there are suspicions of neoplasms in the liver, various diagnostic tests may be prescribed to the patient: hepatoangiography, CT, ultrasound, diagnostic laparoscopy. If adenoma or hyperplasia is detected, a biopsy of the liver tissue prescribed.
If the formation is malignant, and it began to metastasize, it is essential to detect the localization of metastases and begin timely treatment. For this, gastric radiography, colonoscopy, ultrasound of the mammary glands, lung x-ray, and other diagnostic methods for different organs can prescribe.
The basis of any treatment for liver tumors is the surgical removal of the neoplasm and the affected part of the organ. If the cancer is malignant, then in combination with liver resection, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and other methods of combating cancer cells can be prescribed.
When prescribing the optimal treatment regimen, diagnosis plays a vital role, since the choice of treatment depends on the size and nature of the tumor, the presence or absence of metastases, the stage of development of the disease.
