Liver Cancer Diagnosis

If you have liver cancer, you need the care and expertise of a specialized group of physicians who work together as a team to provide advanced care.

Diagnosing Liver Cancer at Fletcher Allen

Fletcher Allen's physicians are specially trained in advanced technology to diagnose liver cancer.

Imaging tests

Your doctor may order any of the following, which take pictures of the inside of your body:

Fine-needle aspiration

Fine-need aspiration is a way to take a tissue or cell sample for testing (called biopsy). During this procedure a needle is inserted through your skin and into your pancreas to collect the biopsy.

Blood tests

Blood tests may indicate problems with your liver function.
