There are two classifications of liver cancer, primary or secondary. Primary liver cancer means the cancer originated (started) in the liver, secondary (metastatic) liver cancer means the cancer originated somewhere else in the body. Primary liver cancer is relatively uncommon in the UK. Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common type of liver cancer, occurring in approximately 90% of cases. This cancer originates from hepatocytes (liver cells). Other types of liver cancer originate from cells in the bile duct (cholangiocarcinoma) and blood vessels within the liver (angiosarcoma).
