Fast Fact #348 has been released: Treatment Options for Hepatocelluar Carcinoma. Thank you to Jonathan Kapke DO, for this new addition to our fast fact library.
Hepatocellular carcinoma is a common malignancy in the US and worldwide. It is associated with high 1 year and 5 year mortality rate. The treatment options for hepatocellular carcinoma are somewhat unique in comparison to other cancers as are the quality of life concerns. This Fast Fact provides an overview of the treatment options of hepatocellular carcinoma so that generalist clinicians and palliative care clinicians can offer better guidance for patients who suffer from this serious illness.
