Disorders develop due to liver cancer such as increased low blood sugar, high cholesterol level, breast enlargement & shrinking of testicles in men.
The liver is an essential organ in the human body that plays an indispensable role in maintaining various body processes, including digestion. It also has a role in the detoxification of your body by clearing off different metabolites and waste products. It is also involved in the synthesis of proteins. It is an organ that is found in the upper right region of the abdomen. It is reddish-brown when it is in a healthy state. The weight can vary from 970 to 1860 grams in men and 600 to 1770 grams in women. It is the heaviest internal organ and the largest gland in the human body. As far as it remains healthy and works well; there is no problem. When it starts becoming unhealthy and cannot perform its functions, the whole body is deranged. One of the harshest liver conditions the liver goes through is liver cancer. Like some other types of cancer, symptoms of liver cancer may not appear in the early stage. This problem leads to a diagnosis of liver tumours mostly in an advanced stage of cancer. Also, there is a lack of screening tests for liver cancer. This makes it necessary for people with a family history of liver cancer to get regular consultation from their doctor.
