Özet

Hepatocellular carcinoma is a common malignancy. It may cause extrahepatic metastases through haematogenous or lymphatic dissemination or direct invasion. Furthermore, methods such as fine-needle aspiration biopsies performed to obtain a diagnosis or percutaneous ethanol injection and radiofrequency hyperthermia performed for treatment may also cause tumour dissemination.
