Unexplained Weight Loss

A gradual and unexplained decrease in weight is often an early sign of primary liver cancer. If you notice a persistent weight loss without trying, consult your doctor immediately.

Loss of Appetite and Feeling Full Quickly: A sudden loss of appetite or a feeling of fullness after eating a small amount of food could be an indication of liver cancer. This is because the tumor can interfere with the liver's ability to process food properly.

Abdominal Pain and Swelling: Persistent pain or discomfort in the upper right abdomen, where the liver is located, can be a symptom of liver cancer. Swelling in the abdomen, known as ascites, can also occur as the tumor grows and puts pressure on surrounding organs.

Jaundice: Yellowing of the skin and eyes, known as jaundice, is a telltale sign of liver dysfunction. It occurs when the liver is unable to properly break down bilirubin, a byproduct of red blood cell breakdown.

Fatigue and Weakness: Unexplained fatigue and weakness can be symptoms of liver cancer, especially if they persist despite adequate rest and nutrition. This is because the tumor can drain the body's energy resources.
