Worldwide Liver Cancer Deaths Have Almost Doubled Since 1990
« on: February 28, 2018, 10:31:19 am »
The annual number of liver cancer–related deaths worldwide has increased by about 80 percent since 1990, a shift driven in large part by hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV/HCV). Liver cancer is now second only to lung cancer as a major cause of all cancer deaths worldwide.

According to the recently published Global Burden of Disease study, 830,000 people died of liver cancer in 2016, compared with 464,000 people in 1990. Two thirds of the deaths in the most recent year were related to HBV or HCV infection.
