Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Primary Liver Cancer Oncological Surgeon
Primary liver cancer, or hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), is a tumor that forms inside a patient’s liver. HCC originates in the liver; it does not spread into the liver from other locations. It is a frequent complication of liver cirrhosis. Most patients in the US with HCC have alcoholic cirrhosis or hepatitis C that causes their cancer. Dr. Alden is a talented and experienced liver cancer oncological surgeon in NYC who determines the cause of each patient’s HCC to determine the best form of treatment.
HCC is extremely common, comprising 95% of all liver cancer cases. About four million people in the US have hepatitis C, and many of them can be expected to develop primary liver cancer, or HCC. Hepatocellular carcinoma tumors are usually discovered through diagnostic imaging like ultrasound, CT or MRI. A positive scan is usually followed up with an alfa-fetoprotein (AFP) marker test to verify a diagnosis of liver cancer. Very high levels of AFP in a patient with alcoholic cirrhosis or hepatitis C typically means HCC is present.

As the best HCC cancer surgeon in NYC serving UAE/Dubai, Dr. Alden prefers cancer resection when possible as the best method to remove tumors with a less risk of recurrence. Resection is also faster, preventing subsequent growth of a tumor while waiting for transplants or other methods of treatment.
However, when a resection is not possible, he may recommend other minimally invasive therapies that can include microwave ablation (MWA) to destroy the tumor cells and arterial embolization to cut off the blood supply to the tumor.
