Should This Giant Liver Tumor Be Resected ?


34-year-old gentleman visited LPC, Mumbai with vague abdominal complaints and an USG & CT scan showing a large liver mass of unknown nature. He only had complaints of dyspeptic nature for few months. He did not have abdominal pain, vomiting, anorexia, jaundice, and fever, weight loss or GI bleed. There was no history of blood transfusion, previous liver disease or surgery. He did not have any co morbid factors like diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disorder, IHD, BA, TB, cirrhosis, kidney disease. He had never had alcohol and never smoked. General examination did not show any significant finding (pallor, cyanosis, jaundice, lymph nodes). Abdominal examination revealed a large palpable lump in the right hypochondrium, probably a mass arising from liver.
