According to researchers, this cancer has increased by 37 percent in the last 5 years all over the world. According to the study, there are many factors affecting the risk of liver cancer, of which obesity and smoking are among the biggest causes.

Talking only about obesity, 33 percent of people are getting liver cancer due to overweight and 20 percent of people are suffering it by smoking.

According to researchers, rising levels of obesity, diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases have a big role in this. According to Cancer Research UK, we can save people from these diseases, but they will have to change their lifestyles themselves. But it is extremely difficult to treat more than one-third of these patients.

These cells are of two types in which first one is called benign tumor (malignant tumor) and second one is called malignant tumor. The growth of benign tumor cells is very slow and does not spread. Malignant tumor cells grow rapidly and also destroy their nearby normal tissues (Tissues). They spread throughout the body.

The term cancer is used when there is a malignant tumor that begins to affect the human body with its unlimited growth and sends cancer cells to human tissues (Tissues). Liver or liver cancer is an abnormal growth of liver cells, the structures of tumors in liver tissue called carcinoma.
