In most hospitals, a team of specialists will decide which treatment they feel is best for your situation.
This multidisciplinary team (MDT) will include:
- a surgeon who specialises in liver cancers
- an oncologist (cancer specialist) who specialises in chemotherapy and radiotherapy
- a radiologist who analyses scans and x-rays
- a pathologist who advises on the type and extent of the cancer
- a nurse specialist.
The team may also include other healthcare professionals, such as a surgeon who specialises in the primary cancer, a dietitian, a palliative care specialist, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist, a psychologist and a counsellor.
