A couple comforts one another as one is about to undergo radiation therapy for liver cancer.

Liver cancer can often be silent, with no noticeable symptoms. It occurs when abnormal cells form and multiply within the liver, an organ situated behind the rib cage in the upper right section of the abdomen. The liver performs many critical functions: it filters and detoxifies the blood, produces bile and enzymes that aid digestion, manufactures essential proteins and regulates cholesterol and hormone levels. At Yale Medicine, we offer specialized treatment for all types and stages of liver cancer.
