Testing for Liver Cancer.
Treatment planning starts with testing. Testing is used to confirm (diagnose) liver cancer as well as check how well treatment is working:
- Blood tests check for signs of disease and how well organs are working,
- Imaging tests take pictures of the inside of your body,
- A biopsy removes tissue or fluid from your body to diagnose cancer,
- Fibrosis score and Child-Pugh class are used to see how well the liver is working, decide if surgery is an option, and plan treatment.
Results from blood tests, imaging studies, and biopsy will determine your treatment plan.
