An Important Step Toward Increasing the 5-Year Survival Rate of Liver Cancer Patients

October 27, 2019

Unlike many other cancer rates that have been on the decline, liver cancer rates for new liver and intrahepatic bile duct cancer cases have been rising. This October, which is Liver Cancer Awareness Month, Global Liver Institute is joining with more than 30 other leading health and medical organizations, to issue a global call-to-action to increase the 5-year survival rates for patients with liver cancer from 18% to 36% by 2030.
