Liver cancer is a major problem. Hundreds of thousands of people have died of liver cancer not only in Bangladesh but all over the world. Sheikh Russell, director of the National Gastroliver Institute and Hospital, spoke on the occasion at the weekly Badi Bari of Samay News. Dr. Farooq Ahmed and Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Chairman of the Department of Interventional Hepatology. Mamun Al Mahtab is dreamy.

The liver is an important part of the body.

So the liver has to work harder. As a result, the disease is more in the liver. Liver cancer is horrible and deadly. In some countries this cancer is more. Bangladesh is in the middle of the position, said Professor. Farooq Ahmed. He expressed concern that liver cancer was on the rise. Which is the cause of great panic.

If someone has pre-existing liver disease then the risk is higher. In addition to poor health, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, there is a risk of liver cancer, said Dr. Farooq Ahmed.

It is estimated that 600,000 people worldwide are diagnosed with liver cancer each year. And according to the World Health Organization, 3,139 people die of liver cancer in Bangladesh every year. Although they have been diagnosed with liver cancer, they do not have any symptoms in the early stages.

Common symptoms include lower abdominal pain, pain in the right side of the abdomen, enlarged liver, bloating, vomiting, back pain, fever, and weight loss.

Hepatitis-B virus is mainly blamed for liver cancer in Bangladesh.

In addition, hepatitis C, fatty liver, liver cirrhosis also increases the risk of liver cancer. Professor Dr. Mamun al-Mahtab Sapnil believes that hepatitis-B vaccine, obesity control, regular exercise, balanced diet, avoidance of alcohol and smoking can prevent liver cancer.

In many cases, cancer of other parts of the body also affects the liver. Which is called secondary liver cancer. Cancer first affects the gallbladder, then spreads to the liver. In such cases, treatment becomes very difficult.

Experts say that the chances of a cure depend on the exact stage of the liver cancer.

Liver cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide.

However, the hope is that if the disease is diagnosed at an early stage, it is possible to cure the patient through proper treatment. But the concern is that a large proportion of patients are seeking medical attention after liver cancer has taken on a complex shape.

Expert advice, if various symptoms occur, it is not negligence or malpractice, but proper treatment should be ensured quickly. And it is possible to control liver cancer.
