Liver Cancer’s Causes

Liver cancer is caused by chronic hepatitis which later on turns to liver cirrhosis. The risk factors usually found in Thailand include.

  • Hepatitis B and C virus infection: If you are infected and unable to receive treatment or left untreated for a long time, it will eventually turn to liver cancer.
  • Fatty liver: 10-20% of the patients who have fatty liver usually have hepatitis disease that increases the risk of cirrhosis and cancer. 
  • Alcoholic drinks addiction
  • Obesity or overweight
  • Medications harmful to liver

Our bodies can stimulate over 97% of the immune system to prevent the infection in our lifetime. However, we can prevent hepatitis B by receiving 3-shots of vaccine to reduce the risk of the disease and liver cancer.
