Liver cancer may not cause any signs or symptoms in its early stages.
For the liver has the ability to function normally even with a large tumor. Signs and symptoms often appear once the tumor grows and causes changes in the body, that’s to say in the end stage.
Here are liver cancer symptoms:
In its early stages:
- Losing weight
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and vomiting
In the end stage :
- Abdominal pain and swelling
- Yellow discoloration of the skin and the whites of the eyes
