Liver cancers are complex neoplastic diseases with varied etiologies. Despite numerous research programs and clinical trials targeting several molecules in the last 50 years, hepatocellular carcinoma, the most common form of liver cancer, is still difficult to cure, and has become the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in adults. This, at least in part, is due to the rising incidence of obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases, and excessive alcohol consumption. An adequate knowledge of the disease, including its etiology and pathology, is essential to develop effective therapies. Contributed by some of the leading hepatologists and pathologists in the field, this book is an effort to provide students, basic scientists, clinicians, and pathologists with a comprehensive understanding of the pathology, diagnosis, treatment, and management of various types of liver cancers.
