Like many types of cancer, liver cancer symptoms often do not appear in the early stages. As a result, liver cancer tends to be diagnosed at a more advanced stage.

Because there are no widely recommended routine screening tests for liver cancer, people with a family history of the disease or other risk factors should talk with their doctor about steps they can take to monitor or reduce their risk. The National Comprehensive Cancer Center (NCCN) recommends alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) blood tests and ultrasounds every 6 to 12 months for people with a high risk of developing liver cancer.

Liver Cancer Symptoms
The symptoms of liver cancer may be different for each person and any one of these symptoms may be caused by other, benign conditions.

When present, common liver cancer symptoms may include:
Weight loss not associated with changes in diet.
Decrease in appetite or a feeling of fullness after a small meal.
Nausea and vomiting not associated with other known conditions.
General weakness and/or fatigue that is persistent, ongoing weakness or fatigue.
Fever that is unrelated to other conditions.
Pain occurring in the upper abdomen on the right side or near the right shoulder blade.
Enlarged liver (hepatomegaly) felt as a mass under the ribs on the right side.
Enlarged spleen felt as a mass under the ribs on the left side.
Abdominal swelling (ascites) or bloating in the abdomen can occur as a mass forms.
Jaundice, which appears as yellowing of the skin and eyes. Jaundice occurs when the liver is not functioning properly.

Diet for Liver Problems
When dealing with Liver Problems it is essential to reduce the consumption of protein and sugar rich foods until the condition is cured. In addition, avoid spicy, fried and processed foods. Try to have smaller meals at regular intervals rather than having fewer heavy meals.

Moreover, replace buffalo’s milk with cow’s milk or goat’s milk. Needless to add, alcohol consumption is also a big no-no. Tea and coffee should also be avoided as far as possible. However, consume adequate amount of water throughout the day, especially in the morning to flush out toxins.

As Liver Problems lead to general weakness and fatigue, it is advisable to have more carbohydrate rich foods that provide energy. Plus, take a well balanced and healthy diet and positively consume beans, tomatoes, carrots, bitter gourds, eggplant, cabbage, radish, sprouts and other similar nutritious foods.
These vegetables are highly beneficial in the detoxification of liver and hence serve as effective natural home remedies for Liver Problems.
