Liver cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the world and the third-biggest killer. Liver cancer can begin in the liver or elsewhere in your body and spread to the liver.
Men develop liver cancer at twice the rate of women in the United States. In other countries, especially in Asia, the rate for men can be eight or 10 times that for women.
Liver cancer incident rates are rising rapidly, in part due to high hepatitis C infection rates during the 1970s from blood transfusions and IV drug abuse. Obesity and type 2 diabetes are another contributing risk factors.
Overeating rich or poor-quality food, viral infections, and environmental stress can cause liver overload, leading to a decreased liver function. In addition, acute overdoses of paracetamol (acetaminophen) can also potentially cause fatal liver damage.
In the early stage of liver disease, your liver may become inflamed and start to scar (fibrosis). In the long term, these will cause a serious scar that cannot be healed (cirrhosis). Cirrhosis may lead for primary liver cancer.
While there have been major advances in treating liver cancer, there are no cures ! That's why it's important for everyone to recognize some possible signs of primary liver cancer.
If you find these symptoms, please seek proper medical help:
- a hard lump in the upper right abdomen, just below the rib cage
- pain around the right shoulder blade
- unexplained weight loss
- jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes)
- unusual tiredness, nausea or appetite loss
Primary liver cancer treatment options may include: surgery, liver transplantation, targeted drugs therapy, radiofrequency ablation, etc.
If you’re already diagnosed with chronic liver disease, you need to take steps to prevent any progression to liver cancer. Make alcohol, drugs and tobacco as your enemies. Having a good quality of night sleep is also vital for your liver health.
Natural Liver Detox : TEMULAWAK
Your liver is a very vital, yet quiet organ and seldom gives sign when it’s sick. Most people having Hepatititis B and Hepatitis C virus are unaware until they develop liver cancer many years later.
If you’re a busy person and no time to care all the diet, don’t worry. You can still protect your liver by consuming TEMULAWAK (Curcuma xanthorrhiza Roxb. - Zingiberaceae family).
TEMULAWAK has strong liver protectant properties, called Curcumin. Curcumin helps to protect your liver from the damaging effects of alcohol, toxic chemicals, and even some pharmaceutical drugs. Curcumin also stimulates the production of bile, which is needed to digest fat, and kills salmonella bacteria and protozoa that cause diarrhea.
