When living with AFP-High* liver cancer (HCC)...

Understanding your condition
Cancer that starts in the liver is known as primary liver cancer. Hepatocellular cancer (HCC) is the most common form of liver cancer in adults. This type of cancer has 2 main growth patterns: a single tumor that grows larger and only spreads late in the disease, or multiple small tumors seen throughout the liver. The latter pattern is typically found in people who have a history of cirrhosis, or chronic liver damage. It is also the most common pattern seen in the United States.
