People at Risk of Liver Cancer

The doctor recommends that people who have not been vaccinated against hepatitis B virus should be vaccinated as soon as possible to avoid the risk of infection later.

The high-risk group needs an examination, a liver cancer index (Alphafetoprotein – AFP) test, and a liver morphological ultrasound to assess the risk.

Then, if in doubt, the doctor will conduct some more tests for a definitive diagnosis without necessarily inserting a biopsy needle into the liver to confirm the cancer.
