"The Changing Etiology and Rise of Liver Cancer: Opportunties for Prevention
in High-Risk Communities"
Collectively liver cancer, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and cholangiocarcinoma, accounts for 9.1% of all reported cancer deaths and is the second most common cause of cancer mortality worldwide. The incidence of liver cancer varies enormously globally and unfortunately the burden of this nearly always fatal disease is much greater in the less economically developed countries of Asia and sub-Saharan Africa . HCC is also the most rapidly rising solid tumor in the US and Central America and is overrepresented in minority communities, including African-Americans, Hispanic/Latino-Americans and Asian-Americans.
