Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Primary Liver Cancer Oncological Surgeon
Primary liver cancer (HCC, or hepatocellular carcinoma) presents as a tumor inside the liver. It is common to find these tumors in patients suffering from cirrhosis and hepatitis C. Primary liver cancer tumors behave differently depending on how they originated, so their origin is of paramount importance when determining the most effective treatment option.
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumors are usually found through diagnostic imaging like x-rays or ultrasound, while CT scans or MRI with contrast studies can often reveal more about the tumor. After tumors have been detected, an alfa-fetoprotein (AFP) marker test typically follows to provide important data.
Dr. Alden and his multidisciplinary team have vast experience diagnosing and treating liver cancer tumors of various types. In over 95% of cases, HCC is the cancer type. Dr. Alden is a talented and experienced liver cancer oncological surgeon in NYC who can diagnose and treat various forms of liver cancer. Over the last 20 years, cases of HCC/primary liver cancer have over doubled.

Dr. Alden is a world-renowned NYC HCC/primary liver cancer surgeon who prefers cancer resection surgery for removing tumors, when possible. He feels this is the best option for reducing reoccurring tumors, based on his vast experience. Resections are not always possible, and Dr. Alden can also discuss other treatment options. Some of them can include:
- Microwave ablation (MWA) that destroys the tumor cells
- Arterial embolization that cuts off blood to the tumor
