Very often, the cancer does not produce symptoms until it is quite large in size. Patients who are known to have Hepatitis B, or have liver cirrhosis will be on regular checkup for their condition. Hence the cancer may be picked up on the regular scans that are performed as part of the checkup.
Some patients may come to know that they have a tumour in the liver only when they go for a healthscreen and a tumour is detected on scans. When symptoms do arise, the common complaints are pain and discomfort in the upper abdominal region, poor appetite and feeling easily tired, or jaundice.
