Liver cancer is usually diagnosed via the following:
Sound waves are used to create a picture of the liver.
CT scan (CAT or computer scan)
X-ray is used to scan the liver at different angles to build a detailed picture of the size and position of the cancer.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI or NMR scan)
A magnet field and radio waves build a cross-sectional pictures of your body to locate and observe the cancer.
In this test, a dye is injected into your bloodstream. The dye shows up on X-ray and reveals abnormalities in the liver's blood supply.
Doctors will use a needle to take a few cells, or a small piece of tissue, from the liver which will be examined under the microscope for cancer cells.
