Cancer risk in patients with cirrhosis could be modified by factors such as changes in hormonal levels, impaired metabolism of carcinogens, or alteration of immunological status. We investigated the risk of liver and various forms of cancer in patients with cirrhosis in a follow‐up study. We identified 11,605 1‐year survivors of cirrhosis from the files of the Danish National Registry of Patients (NRP) from 1977 to 1989. Occurrence of cancer through 1993 was determined by linkage to the Danish… Expand
Cancer risk in primary biliary cirrhosis: a study in northern England
TLDR
With the exception of liver cancer, it is unlikely that there is a high excess incidence for PBC patients from any cancer at a particular site, and specifically breast cancer. Expand
Increased risk for malignant neoplasms among patients with cirrhosis.
TLDR
The overall risk for non-HCC malignancies is more than 2-fold greater for patients with cirrhosis (mostly in biliary and gastrointestinal malignancy) than of the general population. Expand
Gastric cancer prevalence in patients with liver cirrhosis
  • A. Zullo, A. Romiti, +5 authors F. Taggi
  • Medicine
  • European journal of cancer prevention : the official journal of the European Cancer Prevention Organisation
  • 2003
TLDR
The findings confirm that liver cirrhosis would seem to be a risk factor for the development of gastric cancer and other studies are needed to evaluate the pathogenic mechanisms involved. Expand
Effect of liver cirrhosis on metastasis in colorectal cancer patients: a nationwide population-based cohort study.
TLDR
It was found that liver metastasis risk was underestimated and even higher in colorectal cancer patients with liver cirrhosis. Expand
Incidence, Mortality, and Predictive Factors of Hepatocellular Carcinoma in Primary Biliary Cirrhosis
TLDR
The incidence and mortality of HCC in PBC patients were significantly higher than those in Japanese general population and patients with low serum albumin levels were populations at high risk for HCC. Expand
Risk of colorectal cancer in chronic liver diseases: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Patients with chronic liver diseases had an increased risk of CRC compared with the general population, which persisted after liver transplantation, and a more intensive surveillance for CRC is warranted in this population. Expand
History of cirrhosis and risk of digestive tract neoplasms.
TLDR
This study confirms and further quantifies the increased risk of liver cancer in cirrhotic patients and is compatible with an increase risk of oral, pharyngeal and oesophageal cancers. Expand
Hepatic and Extrahepatic Cancer in Cirrhosis: A Longitudinal Cohort Study
TLDR
A retrospective cohort study in cirrhotic patients to understand the risk of developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after an initial negative screening computed tomography (CT) scan and its relationship with underlying etiology and therisk of extrahepatic cancers (EHCs), furthers understanding of HCC and EHC risk in Cirrhosis. Expand
Causes of Death in People with Liver Cirrhosis in England Compared with the General Population: A Population-Based Cohort Study
TLDR
In order to reduce associated mortality among people with liver cirrhosis, patients’ care pathways need to be tailored depending on the etiology and stage of the disease. Expand
Long-term survival and cause-specific mortality in patients with cirrhosis of the liver: a nationwide cohort study in Denmark.
TLDR
Patients with cirrhosis of the liver face reduced life expectancy due to several causes of death, and mortality in all disease categories was increased, even in those not traditionally related to Cirrhosis. Expand

Cancer risk in primary biliary cirrhosis: A population‐based study from Sweden
TLDR
A cohort of 559 patients in Sweden who satisfied predetermined criteria for the diagnosis of primary biliary cirrhosis was followed with respect to the incidence of cancer during the period of 1958 to 1988 and found no excess risk for breast cancer and the number of hepatocellular cancers did not significantly change. Expand
Alcoholism and liver cirrhosis in the etiology of primary liver cancer
TLDR
It is concluded that alcohol intake may be a liver carcinogen only by being causally involved in the development of cirrhosis; and further, that the risk of developing liver cancer following Cirrhosis in this population is similar to or higher than that after chronic hepatitis‐B‐virus infection in other Western countries.

Primary biliary cirrhosis in The Netherlands. An analysis of associated diseases, cardiovascular risk, and malignancies on the basis of mortality figures.
TLDR
Dying occurred predominantly in the older age classes, with an age-related difference in some associated disorders, and patients with PBC showed an increased risk of HCC and diseases of the musculoskeletal system. Expand
Medical history and primary liver cancer.
TLDR
For hepatitis, the association was more evident at older ages, confirming the long lead time between infection and cancer occurrence, while for diabetes it was stronger (or restricted) to cases aged less than 60, suggesting a possible specific role of type I diabetes. Expand
Incidence of hepatic and extra-hepatic malignancies in primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC).
TLDR
HCC has a relatively high prevalence in PBC and HCV superinfection may play an important role in favouring HCC, and the incidence of breast cancer is not significantly increased. Expand

TLDR
The epidemiological results suggest that some differences exist in the activity and modes of cancer promotion between hepatitis B virus infection and hepatitis C virus infection. Expand

TLDR
Of 208 patients with primary biliary cirrhosis, followed for one month to 15.9 years, extrahepatic malignancies developed in 11, six of whom were women with breast cancer, and one with hepatocellular carcinoma. Expand

TLDR
An analysis of 294 patients who died with cirrhosis showed that 24% had developed hepatocellular carcinoma and the proportion developing this tumour in each group was closely related to the proportion of males in that group (r=0.97). Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that cirrhosis is an independent risk factor for colorectal adenomatous polyps and confirmed that alcoholism increases this risk. Expand
