Often there are no early symptoms of liver cancer, because the liver is a very resilient organ that can continue to work well even when large parts of it are damaged. If you do notice symptoms, they may be similar to those seen in other liver conditions.
However, the earlier liver cancer is diagnosed, the better the chances of successful treatment, so if you’re at all worried or think something isn’t right, talk to your doctor.
Other symptoms include:
- A general feeling of poor health
- Loss of appetite
- Fatigue and weakness
- Feeling sick (nausea) and vomiting
- Loss of weight
- Discomfort over the liver area (upper right section of the tummy)
- Itchy skin
- Pale or grey poo
- Dark urine
- Loss of sex drive (libido).
