Abstract

Hepatocellular carcinoma remains a worldwide epidemic. Survival rates are poor; however, oncologists are able to offer regional therapies to those patients who present with early disease. Prevention through vaccination remains a mainstay of this epidemic. New staging systems that incorporate important information about tumor characteristics and liver disease improve our ability to prognosticate and treat these patients.
