Liver cancer forms in the tissue of the liver. Specialists at Rush provide comprehensive care for the all types of liver cancer, including the following:

  • Hepatocellular carcinoma
  • Bile duct cancer (intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma or Klatskin’s tumor)
  • Metastatic cancer (cancer that has spread from another organ to the liver)

Rush offers the most advanced treatments for liver cancer, some of which include the following:

  • Surgical options, including liver resection (surgical removal of part of the liver) or liver transplant
  • Ablation therapy (a minimally invasive procedure) to destroy cancer cells
  • Targeted therapies (medications) that attack cancer cells without harming healthy cells

Whether you are a new patient or seeking a second opinion, liver cancer experts at Rush take a multidisciplinary approach to your diagnosis and treatment. Your care team may include medical oncologists, hepatologists, transplant surgeons, interventional radiologists and others. Together, they will create an individualized care plan that focuses on both treating the cancer and preserving your quality of life.
