Tomi Jun, MD, Stanford University School of Medicine, discusses results of a multi-center study investigating patients with cyptogenic hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).

It was confirmed in a large cohort of 4000 patients with cyptogenic HCC, that one-third did not have cirrhosis, explains Jun. It was also discovered that this population presents with a later stage of disease and often with more advanced tumors.

According to Jun, this suggests that if there was better early detection, these patients might have better survival rates.
