Abstract

Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common cancer in males. Surgery is the only curative treatment, but is applicable in only 10-15% of patients. Systemic chemotherapy, transarterial embolization or chemo-embolization can only palliate. In the future, selective internal radiation may have a role in downstaging inoperable hepatoma to operable tumour.
