Learn about liver cancer, its risk factors, symptoms, and both invasive and non-invasive treatment options such as HIFU, which is available in Mexico. Joining us is Dr. Luis Pichardo, an oncologist with over 25 years of experience practicing in Mexico City.

Liver cancer is a malignant tumor that develops in the cells of the liver. Its occurrence can be related to hepatitis B, hepatitis C, cirrhosis, and genetic or ethnic predisposition.
Often, liver cancer does not present symptoms in its early stages. Identifying risk factors and being alert to signs indicating their presence is important. The most common symptoms include weight loss, yellowing of the skin and eyes, nausea, and changes in the color of urine and stools. Early detection of cancer broadens treatment options and reduces the aggressiveness of the cancer and the symptoms that will present as a result.
Depending on the type of liver cancer and its location, treatment may include surgery, radiotherapy, or chemotherapy. In Mexico, there are now significant medical advances and new treatment options such as HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, which generates ultrasonic energy that is focused and concentrated on the tumor to destroy its cells. Unlike other techniques, HIFU does not require surgical intervention.

Each patient is different and should be offered personalized medical attention, so not everyone is a candidate for the same treatment plan. It is important to consult with a certified doctor who is constantly updated on minimally invasive techniques such as High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound. If you are interested in finding out if you are a candidate for HIFU for liver cancer, do not hesitate to schedule a virtual consultation with the specialist in Mexico.
