Primary liver cancer is a type of cancer that originates in the liver as opposed to metastatic cancers, which begin elsewhere and spread to the liver. Primary liver cancer is not uncommon, but unfortunately, it is also not usually detected early, resulting in poor prognosis.
A number of other countries are good choices for treatment of liver cancer. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are almost always cheaper in these countries, and the level of care is excellent. There are two other considerations for patients with liver cancer considering treatment abroad. If the cancer has not spread, a liver transplant, which is also cheaper abroad, can sometimes be a suitable treatment as well. Also, some other countries may have a higher frequency of certain types of proven treatment such as radiofrequency ablation.
