Swiss Foundation against Liver Cancer

Liver cancer is a frequent disease. Patients with liver cancer have most of the time an underlying chronic liver disease, often without knowing it since the liver is an organ which does not trigger pain. However, it is possible to cure patients from their liver cancer when the diagnosis is done at an early stage.  Therefore diagnostic tools for detecting liver cancer are of utmost importance.

Therapeutically great progresses have been realized in the last years, patients have access to more possible treatments. But the treatment of patients with liver cancer is complex.

The Swiss Foundation against Liver Cancer aims at disseminating information about this disease to increase awareness and to support research to improve the diagnosis, therapy and management of patients and families confronted with this disease.
