Hepatocellular carcinoma is a primary cancer of the liver and occurs predominantly in patients with underlying chronic liver disease and cirrhosis. The cell of origin are believed to be the hepatic stem cells, although this remains the subject of investigation. Tumors progress with local expansion, intrahepatic spread, and distant metastases. In general, the tumors are discovered either during routine screening or when symptomatic because of their size or location.
