Abstract:   (1469 Views)
: In this short commentary, we discuss the most important risk factors for liver cancer. One of the most striking risks is infection with hepatitis B and C viruses, leading to chronic hepatitis, which may later develop into hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The use of alcohol may lead to cirrhosis, which is scarring the liver, is associated with 30 a more increase in HCC and 10-20 times more increase in intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC). Age is another factor to be considered in almost all cancers, and it is not excluded in the development of liver cancer as the population ages, the incidence of which increases. The use of tobacco and poor nutrition can act as risk factors for liver cancer. Prevention is essential for preventing this scourge. 
Keywords: risk factor, alcohol, tobacco, age, hepatocellular carcinoma, fibrolamellar carcinoma, intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma, hepatoblastoma.
