The liver is the largest internal organ – it lies under your right hand side ribs, just beneath your right lung1. An extremely important organ, it filters toxins and waste from the bloodstream and converts nutrients and drugs absorbed from the digestive tract into ready-to-use chemicals2.
As the liver is made up of several different types of cells, several types of tumours can form there. Whilst some of these are benign (non-cancerous), some are cancerous and can spread to other parts of the body (metastasise). These tumours have different causes and are treated differently2.
