Liver Cancer Detection
Most liver cancers do not cause symptoms until late stages, making early detection difficult.
If you have common risk factors such as cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis or alcoholism, Norton Cancer Institute physicians use a variety of screening techniques to test for the disease. These may include:
- Biopsy blood tests
- Computed tomography (CT) scans
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
Full Range of Targeted Cancer Therapies
The preferred treatment for patients with liver tumors is surgical removal, also called resection. Other options we offer at the Liver Cancer Clinic include:
- Intraoperative MRI
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Microwave ablation
- TheraSphere® treatment
Explore Liver Cancer Clinical Trials
In addition to our current leading-edge treatments, Norton Cancer Institute gives our Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute- and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These trials help to improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new and promising solutions.
