Core Tip Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) constitutes the commonest primary liver cancer, and if diagnosed at an early stage, has better prognosis. Of late, there has been evolution of utility of endoscopic techniques, specifically endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS) with fine needle aspiration, for this purpose. EUS is superior over computed tomography in detecting hepatic lesions smaller than 1cm, and also allows FNA for accurate histopathological diagnosis. This strategy is particularly useful for indeterminate nodules, with non-specific imaging characteristics. Role of EUS in diagnosis and management of HCC are the focus of this article. In addition, other endoscopic techniques, including esophagogastroduodenoscopy and endoscopic retrograde cholangio-pancreatography, are of immense use in management of complications of HCC, which are also briefly discussed in this review.
