After receiving a liver transplant, women with a history of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC, the most common form of liver cancer) not only have a lower risk of recurrence of the cancer than their male counterparts, they also tend to survive longer, according to a new study.

Previous research has indicated that among people with cirrhosis, men have a two to four times higher risk of developing liver cancer. Among Asians with hepatitis B virus (HBV)—Asians have a disproportionately high rate of the virus—women age 50 and older have the same diagnosis rate of liver cancer as men age 40 and older.

Other research has found that after adjusting the data for diagnosis, symptoms and tumor-related factors, women with liver cancer have a 16% lower risk of death than their male counterparts.
