You need your liver to keep most chemical levels in your blood in check and to get rid of something called bile. This lets waste products from the liver are flushed out. For blood to get to other important parts of the body, it first goes through the liver.
It's also possible for the liver to be damaged by cancer, which makes it unable to do these important things. As a group of illnesses, cancer is called the "big umbrella word." It's also possible to get liver cancer, which is a type of cancer that starts in the organ.
In the world, it is one of the most common and deadly cancers in the world. As a result of having hepatitis B virus for a long time and eating certain foods, this condition can happen.
Some things, especially when taken in large amounts, can raise your risk of liver cancer.
Drinking too much alcohol.
For a long time, if you drink more than a moderate amount of alcohol every day, it could cause permanent liver damage and make you more likely to get liver cancer.
Getting hepatitis B and C viruses from people who have them.
Having hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus is the most common cause of liver cancer in people all over the world (HCV). There are a lot of diseases that can cause cirrhosis of the liver. This is why liver cancer is so common in many parts of the world.
When someone has Hepatitis C, they are more likely to get HCC. Hepatitis B, on the other hand, is more common in Asia and countries that are less developed. They are more likely to get chronic hepatitis, liver cirrhosis, and liver cancer when they are infected. If they drink a lot, the risk is even more (at least 6 alcoholic drinks a day).
When you smoke, the chance of getting liver cancer goes up a lot. It's less risky for people who haven't smoked to quit thanks to people who haven't smoked to smoke. People who haven't smoked are at the same risk as people who don't smoke.
A fungus grows on peanuts, wheat, soybeans, ground nuts, corn, and rice, making cancer-causing chemicals that can be harmful. People who keep this fungus inside in a damp, warm place can get it to grow.
This can happen anywhere on the planet, but it's more common in tropical and warm climates where the weather is hot. In countries like the United States and Europe, the levels of aflatoxin are checked.
