Core Tip It is well recognized that one cause of chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is alcohol consumption. There is only one way of diagnosing HCC, which is early identification through surveillance, when curative treatments become possible. After stopping alcohol intake the risk of liver cancer decreases by 6% to 7% a year, and an estimated time period of 23 years is also needed. Ablation can be regarded as a first-line choice for patients with very early stage HCC. It is important to underline that the choice of treatment should be weighed carefully in the context of a multidisciplinary cancer team.
