Risk factors

The following factors increase the chance of primary liver cancer:

  • Chronic infection with B or C virus (HBV or HCV).

A chronic hepatitis B or C virus infection raises your chance of developing liver cancer.

  • Cirrhosis.

Your risk of developing liver cancer grows because of this untreatable, progressive disorder that makes scar tissue accumulate in your liver.

  • Inherited liver diseases.

Hemochromatosis and Wilson’s disease are two liver conditions that can raise the risk of developing liver cancer.

  • Diabetes.

The chance of liver cancer is higher in those suffering from this blood sugar issue than in people without diabetes.

  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver condition.

Fat accumulation in the liver raises the chance of liver malignancy.

  • Exposure to aflatoxins.

Aflatoxins are poisons that are created by mold on crops that have been improperly stored. Aflatoxin contamination of crops, including grains and nuts, can lead to aflatoxins appearing in meals prepared from these ingredients.

  • Excessive alcohol consumption.

Drinking large amounts of alcohol every day for a long period of time might cause irreversible liver damage and raise your risk of liver cancer.

  • Being obese or being overweight.
