Each year in the United States, more than 28,000 people are diagnosed with primary liver cancer. Although long-term survival with liver cancer remains poor, advances in surgery, other liver-directed therapies, and targeted systemic therapies are all contributing to improved outcomes. In addition, advances in supportive care have made liver cancer treatment more tolerable, leading to improved quality of life. Understanding treatment options and how and when to access new and innovative treatment options available through clinical trials is essential in order to achieve the best outcome from liver cancer treatment.
