The Liver Cancer Patient Guide was written by doctors who specialize in the research and treatment of liver cancers. They strongly believe that the more patients know about their disease and treatment options, the better their care will be. This booklet is designed to assist you in your communication with patients in regards to understanding liver cancer, evaluation and tests that may be performed, and general information on treatment options. Additionally, the links sheet provides access to other valuable educational resources that will also assist you and your staff in the overall management of patients with liver cancer.Introduction
