Hepatocellular Carcinoma / Liver cancer

Large lesion (hepatoma) is seen which defined as hepatocellular carcinoma; primary liver malignancy worldwide.
Routine screening is advised to this patient for further detection of liver cancer and failure.
Generally, Ultrasound is an excellent front-line diagnostic tool for evaluating the liver. It can help assess the presence of liver disease (such as fatty liver), detect liver lesions, and much more.
