DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is the genetic material located in all human cells. DNA is a code that contains guidelines for the production of all physical characteristics. DNA is inherited from mothers and fathers.

Cancer takes place when within the framework of DNA, there is a sudden change. This is known as a genetic mutation. The DNA also offers cells with guidelines about when to expand, reproduce, and when to end playing.

The mutation in the DNA changes these guidelines, so the cells proceed to develop. The cells carry on to reproduce uncontrollably. The production of a mass of tissue is regarded as a tumor.

Liver cancer or hepatic cancer is cancer that originates in the liver. Liver tumors are discovered on medical imaging equipment (often by accident) or it presents themselves symptomatically as an abdominal mass, abdominal pain, yellow skin, nausea or liver dysfunction.

The leading cause of liver cancer is viral infection with the hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus.

Cancer usually forms secondary to cirrhosis caused by these viruses. For this reason, the highest rates of liver cancer occur where these viruses are endemic.
