The right hepatic liver mass was proven to be HCC by pathology.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common primary malignancy of the liver.

The major risk factor for the development of hepatocellular carcinoma is cirrhosis, particularly cirrhosis related to chronic viral hepatitis, alcoholic cirrhosis, cirrhosis caused by hemochromatosis, and primary biliary cirrhosis.

HCC is typically diagnosed in late middle age or elderly adults (average 65 years) and is more common in males (75% cases). The tumor can also occur in the pediatric population.
