Look Out For These Silent Signs Of Liver Cancer, Early Days Maybe Symptom-Less

LIVER growth, particularly in the beginning periods, may not show any side effect, however there can be some unmistakable signs which recommend a man is enduring with the illness.

A few people with interminable liver illness are analyzed before any side effects show up through tests to check how their liver is functioning.

Liver cancer can be caused by alcohol abuse, having a long-term hepatitis B or hepatitis C viral infection, haemochromatosis or primary cirrhosis – a long-term liver disease which damages the bile ducts in the liver.

The liver stores nutrient, can convert fat to energy when the body needs it and produced bile, which helps the digestion and absorption of food.


      Symptoms of liver cancer include:

Unintentional weight loss

Loss of appetite

Feeling very full after eating, even if the meal was small

Feeling sick


Pain or swelling in the abdomen 
The swelling in the stomach is called ascites, a build-up of fluid between the two layers of the peritoneum, a membrane lining the abdomen

 The exact cause of liver cancer is unknown, but most cases are associated with damage and scarring of the liver known as cirrhosis

Jaundice is the yellowing of your skin and the whites of your eyes. Bilirubin is a waste product which is created when red blood cells break down. If the liver is damaged and can’t process bilirubin, it can cause the skin to develop a yellow tinge.

Itchy skin

Itchy skin is caused by waste products collecting in the skin. While doctors can prescribe tablets to stop the itching, people can only really get rid of it if the jaundice is treated and the bile ducts are unblocked.  Itchy skin could also be a symptom of primary biliary chongalitis, a form of liver disease which affects more than 15,000 people in Africa.

Feeling tired and weak is a symptom of liver cancer. Experts said only a small proportion of liver cancers are diagnosed at a stage where these treatments are suitable and said most people are diagnosed when the cancer has spread too far to be removed or completely destroyed
