Liver cancer is truly more common in the Philippines than in most other countries. In 2014, liver cancer claimed the lives of 20 Filipinos a day; a number that is projected to double by 2030. The characteristics of minimally invasive treatment are few side effects, small trauma and quick recovery, which prevent liver cancer patients from surgery and side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
Classification of Liver Cancer
They are several types of liver cancer based on the type of cells that becomes cancerous, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), fibrolamellar HCC, Cholangiocarcinoma, Angiosarcoma, Secondary liver cancer.
Interpretation of Liver Cancer Pathology Report
Liver Cancer Stages and Corresponding 5-year Survival Rate
Torturous Traditional Anticancer Technology
Operation：Big Trauma and High Risk;
Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy: unbearable toxic side effects, like hair losing, vomiting and etc.
Improve the survival rate of Liver Cancer with New Technology
Minimally Invasive Therapy: 2-3mm incision, few side effects, little pain
Nanoknife: Non-thermal ablation, the ablation of nanoknife mainly uses electric pulses to break through the cell membrane of cancer cells via high voltage pulse released by an electrode probe to form multiple nanoscale irreversible electroporation, destroying internal and external cell balance then and making cells die quickly.
Microwave Ablation：With high efficiency and short operating time, microwave ablation can ablate a tumor with 6cm diameter in 10 minutes generally, with high safety, few toxic side effect and low recurrence rate
Interventional therapy: With a 1-2 millimeter incision, anticancer drugs are directly given to the tumor, causing fewer side effects and drug concentration is 2-8 times higher than that of systemic chemotherapy, killing cancer cells more accurately.
Cryotherapy: This therapy overcomes the limitations of anesthetic and avoids the risks and complications of surgery; little bleeding and quick recovery; few damage to normal tissues and can be performed repeatedly to prevent recurrence of liver cancer.
Particle Implantation: These implanted particles will keep emitting y-ray within the tumor, targeting to the cancer cells accurately; the radiation of seeds to tumor last for 180 days, high accuracy, millimeter minimally invasive; few toxic side effects and complications.
