2018 Global Forum: Global Challenges in HCC Risk and Surveillance
Recorded On: 11/12/2018
HCC is the fifth most common cancer and the third cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. The underlying liver disease that ultimately leads to HCC varies throughout the world. Identifying the population at risk for HCC is critical in order to implement preventive strategies to reduce the burden of the disease. Moreover, identifying the population at risk will facilitate the use of surveillance programs. This forum will review, in all pertinent regions of the world, the main populations at risk for HCC and discuss strategies for reducing the burden of the disease through prevention and surveillance.
