Hepatocellular carcinomas frequently occur in association with liver cirrhosis, as chronic liver disease is one of the most important factors in carcinogenesis. In addition to small hepatocellular carcinomas (less than 3 cm in diameter), recent reports of pathologic studies of resected specimens from cirrhotic liver describe associated small nodular lesions (i.e., regenerating nodule, adenomatous hyperplasia, and early hepatocellular carcinoma). In hepatocarcinogenesis of the cirrhotic liver, a… CONTINUE READING
