Liver Cancer Symptoms

Paraneoplastic syndromes

Rarely, particularly in the early phases of the disease, liver cancer may result in the development of additional problems. Other regions of the body get symptoms from paraneoplastic disorders. Identification of these signs might aid in the detection of liver cancer. The following are a few paraneoplastic syndromes connected to liver cancer:

  • High blood calcium levels (Hypercalcemia).

Is a serious problem that can lead to constipation, frequent urination, frequent headaches, nausea, vomiting, and extreme thirst.

  • Low blood sugar levels (Hypoglycemia).

This may result in fatigue, fainting, numbness in some facial structures like the cheeks or lips, and an irregular pulse.

  • High red blood cell counts (Erythrocytosis).

Headaches, elevated blood pressure, blurred vision, weariness, and nosebleeds are common symptoms.

  • High cholesterol levels (Hypercholesterolemia).

Which, if left untreated, may cause cholesterol deposits to build up on the artery walls, increasing the risk of a heart attack and stroke.

  • Gynecomastia (male breast enlargement).

Characterized by enlarged breast tissue, breast tenderness, and occasionally nipple discharge

  • Shrinkage of men’s testicles.

Primarily characterized by testicular discomfort, edema, and atrophy.
