“The National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program estimates that 42,220 new cases of liver and intrahepatic bile duct cancer will be diagnosed in the United States and some 30,200 people are expected to die of primary adult liver cancer in 2018. The five-year survival rate is just 17.7 percent. Having hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or cirrhosis are significant risk factors for adult primary liver cancer.
