Liver Cancer Treatment

Norton Cancer Institute offers hope to our Louisville-area patients diagnosed with liver cancer through pioneering research and alternative, state-of-the-art treatment options.

Working closely with you and your primary care physician, we’ll devise a personalized liver cancer care plan based on the stage and type of the tumor, plus presence of any other medical conditions. We also offer ongoing liver cancer support services to empower you and your loved ones, wherever you are in the journey.

Liver Cancer Detection

Most liver cancers do not cause symptoms until late stages, making early detection difficult.

If you have common risk factors such as cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis or alcoholism, Norton Cancer Institute physicians use a variety of screening techniques to test for the disease. These may include:

  • Angiography
  • Biopsy blood tests
  • Computed tomography (CT) scans
  • Laparoscopy
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Ultrasound

Full Range of Targeted Cancer Therapies

The preferred treatment for patients with liver tumors is surgical removal, also called resection. Other options we offer at the Liver Cancer Clinic include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Chemoembolization
  • Intraoperative MRI
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Microwave ablation
  • TheraSphere® treatment

Explore Liver Cancer Clinical Trials

In addition to our current leading-edge treatments, Norton Cancer Institute gives our Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute- and industry-sponsored clinical research studies. These trials help to improve current cancer treatments, in addition to finding new and promising solutions.

See our current list of cancer clinical trials or call (502) 629-3449 for additional options and participation information.
