You usually begin by seeing your GP. They will ask about your symptoms and examine you.
Your GP will usually take blood samples to check your general health. They may arrange other tests, such as an ultrasound . They will refer you to a hospital for specialist advice. If your GP suspects you may have cancer, you should see a specialist within two weeks.
If you have long-term liver disease, you may have regular blood tests and ultrasound scans to check your liver. If primary liver cancer (HCC) develops, these tests may find the cancer at an earlier stage.
