I have hepatocellular carcinoma. It is rare especially because I am only 44 with no chronic liver disease. I am wondering if there are other people out there who have this also with no prior liver disease, hepatitis B or cirrhosis which is usually the nature of getting this type. I am told that all of the systemic all over body chemo does not work so I am only left with surgery and/or local treatments. It has spread to my lungs. I would like to see other options people may have tried.
