Condition: Liver cancer



DESCRIPTION: Liver fibrosis is the scarring process that represents the liver's response to injury. In the same way as skin and other organs heal wounds through deposition of collagen and other matrix constituents so the liver repairs injury through the deposition of new collagen. Over time this process can result in cirrhosis of the liver in which the architectural organization of the functional units of the liver becomes so disrupted that blood flow through the liver and liver function become disrupted. Once cirrhosis has developed the serious complications of liver disease may occur including portal hypertension, liver failure and liver cancer. The risk of liver cancer is greatly increased once cirrhosis develops and cirrhosis should be considered to be a pre-malignant condition. Cirrhosis and liver cancer are now among the top ten causes of death worldwide, and in many developed countries liver disease is now one of the top five causes of death in middle-age
