Dr. Joe Galati Podcast
#LiverCancer Expert Discussion
Each year, approximately 43,000 new cases of #livercancer are diagnosed, and approximately 31,000 people will die. Liver cancer rates have tripled since 1980, most likely due to increased rates of #hepatitisC, #fattyliver, and #hepatitisB. This week on Dr. Galati‘s weekly radio program, Your Health First, he interviewed Dr. Sudha Kodali, a partner of his at Houston Methodist Hospital. They discussed the underlying risk factors for liver cancer, the need to know your liver test results, and not ignore subtle abnormalities of you are liver chemistries.
One of the growing public health concerns that we have been speaking about for years is related to the global obesity epidemic which resulted in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, a leading cause of liver cancer. Left untreated, liver cancer is universally fatal.
Being aware of your risk factors, and getting early intervention, can lead to an excellent outcome.
