    Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is cancer that originates in the liver. It is also called primary liver cancer or hepatoma. This type of cancer is often caused by cirrhosis, a scarring of the liver, infection with the hepatitis B or C viruses, and hemochromatosis (too much iron in the liver). HCC is relatively uncommon in the United States, although its incidence is rising, principally in relation to the spread of hepatitis C infection. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how liver cancer/HCC is contracted, what it looks like, how to treat it, and much more.
