Who: Melissa J. Watson, MD

There are certain factors that can affect treatment and prognosis for a person with liver cancer. These factors include the person’s general health, the way that the liver itself is functioning, the stage of the cancer, and the levels of alpha-fetoproteins. Once a comprehensive diagnosis is made and the cancer is staged, surgery is often the primary method of treatment prescribed. Take advantage of this opportunity to chat live with Melissa J.
