One of the more common types of cancer in recent days is hepatic cancers. It has been reported that the frequency of occurrence in the United States has increased threefold since 1980.

Treatment of Hepatitis C infected patients, staying healthy and keeping diet, regularly going in for sports play an important role in preventing the hepatic cancer.
