Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Primary Liver Cancer Oncological Surgeon
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tumors are usually found through diagnostic imaging that reveals a mass in the liver. Also known as primary liver cancer, HCC is frequently discovered in patients with liver cirrhosis and/or hepatitis C. The origin of your liver cancer is of prime importance, as it will dictate to a significant degree your best treatment protocol. HCC is common, representing 95% of all primary liver cancers, and it has doubled in frequency over the past 20 years.
When an HCC mass is detected in the liver through diagnostic imaging like ultrasound, CT scans or MRI scans, your specialist will typically order an alfa-fetoprotein (AFP) marker test as well. This can provide more important information to indicate HCC tumors. Since cancerous tumors behave differently according to type, it is important to gather as much information as possible about your particular type of cancer before tailoring a custom treatment approach.

Best-in-Class HCC/Primary Liver Cancer Surgeon Serving Qatar
Dr. Alden provides all his patients a completely customized treatment plan that is formulated only after a comprehensive evaluation of their cancer type, number and location of tumors and any underlying health conditions. Concurrent medical conditions must be managed effectively in order to provide the best possible cancer treatment.
Dr. Alden is well-versed in medical, chemical and surgical approaches to liver cancer treatment, including liver transplants. As an experienced liver cancer surgeon with decades of successful practice, Dr. Alden prefers to surgically resect liver cancer tumors when possible, as this often presents the fastest method of treatment and the best results. Delay for a transplant often allows time for the tumor to grow, often by 30% or more, and can even put a candidate’s viability for a transplant at risk.
Surgical resection is not always possible, and Dr. Alden can discuss other methods of treatment to treat cancerous tumors, which may include:
- Microwave ablation (MWA) that destroys the tumor cells
- Arterial embolization that cuts off blood to the tumor
