Liver Cancer: Treatments and Services

Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University in Atlanta, GA offers liver cancer treatments for primary, secondary and metastatic liver cancer patients (including gastrointestinal cancer patients) in Georgia and the Southeast.

Treatment of liver cancer depends on the condition of the liver and the number, size, and location of the tumors. Treatment options may include one or more of the following options.

Surgery for Liver Cancer

  • Physicians may remove the parts of the liver and nearby affected tissues.

  • Chemotherapy and radiation may be used before or after surgery.


Radiation for Liver Cancer

  • Radiation is the use of high-energy x-rays or other types of radiation to kill cancer cells.

  • Physicians may use radiation by itself to treat liver cancer or to shrink tumors before surgery.

  • Radiation therapy is given based on the stage of the tumor.


Chemotherapy for Liver Therapy

  • Chemotherapy is the use of drugs to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells.

  • Physicians give these drugs based on the stage of the tumor. Chemotherapy may be used in combination with surgery to treat liver cancer.
