Mayo Clinic Studies Identify Risk Factors in Rising Trend of Liver Cancer

Two Mayo Clinic studies published in the January 3 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings offer a clearer picture of the rise of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), or liver cancer, which has tripled in the U.S. in the last three decades and has a 10 to 12 percent five-year survival rate when detected in later stages.
 
The studies were funded by the National Institute of Health and the Mayo Clinic Center for Translational Science Activities.
