Cancer of the liver develops when a mass of cells in the liver grows uncontrollably. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), cholangiocarcinoma, and angiosarcoma are all examples of liver cancer.
Most cases of liver cancer in adults are caused by HCC. Several variables can increase your probability of liver cancer, while the actual reason is uncertain. Therefore, it may be helpful to become aware of your risk factors so that you may make well-informed decisions about how to alter your lifestyle and when to take preventative or corrective action.
Consider these five potential causes of liver cancer:
Virus-Induced Chronic Hepatitis
Liver cirrhosis and malignancy are both possible outcomes of viral hepatitis B and C infection.
Cirrhosis is a condition in which scar tissue replaces healthy liver cells, raising the danger of developing liver cancer.
3. Excessive alcohol or tobacco use
Cirrhosis and cancer of the liver are two consequences of chronic heavy drinking or smoking.
Diabetes mellitus, type 2
Liver cancer is more common in people with type 2 diabetes who are overweight or who have other risk factors, such as chronic viral hepatitis or heavy alcohol consumption.
Toxins like these are produced by fungi and can be found in foods like rice, soybeans, corn, groundnuts, peanuts, and wheat. Foods that have been stored in a warm, moist area may foster the growth of mould and fungi, which can raise the risk of liver cancer.
