A systematic assessment of different environmental, lifestyle, medical and familial factors associated with risk of liver cancer and survival

Over the past 20 years, incidence and mortality of liver cancer in the United States has been dramatically increasing. However, our understanding of the possible uncovering risk factors for this disease is still not adequate. The current study aims to provide a comparatively systematic evaluation of different environmental, lifestyle, medical and familial factors in the formulation of risk of profile of liver cancer, hoping to get out with plausible screening recommendations of this cancer.
