More than one million people worldwide die annually of hepatocellular carcinoma, the third highest cause of death due to malignant neoplasm. Hepatocellular carcinoma often develops from viral hepatitis. It has been reported that the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma is related to the stage of hepatic fibrosis, making it a particularly important factor in the long-term prognosis of chronic hepatitis C. The incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma increases along with progression of the stage. It is… CONTINUE READING
