Chemotherapy is used for the treatment of most cancers, and liver cancer is no exception. Chemotherapy is not highly effective for this disease. But it still remains the main method for inoperable tumors. This applies to the majority of liver cancer cases, because radical surgery can only be performed when carcinoma is detected at an early stage.


  1. Indications
  2. Systemic chemotherapy
  3. Regional chemotherapy
  4. Treatment abroad with Booking Health



The chemotherapy method in the treatment of liver cancer is used in the following cases:

  • Localized inoperable cancer
  • Metastatic liver cancer
  • Recurrent cancer after surgery

Chemotherapy treatment is not usually applied in addition to radical surgery. It is not prescribed after a surgical intervention. An exception is chemotherapy for liver metastases. Sometimes chemotherapy, along with targeted therapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy or hepatic artery embolization, can be used to try to shrink the tumor. In this case, non-resectable cancer can sometimes be made resectable. Eventually, the patient undergoes surgery, which may potentially cure the disease.

For non-resectable localized cancer, the treatment option of organ transplantation remains. Chemotherapy can be used while the patient is waiting for this operation.

Systemic chemotherapy


The conventional way of treatment is based on chemotherapy drugs administered intravenously or taken orally by the patient in the form of tablets, pills or capsules. Such therapy for oncological disease allows for affecting all tumor foci at once, regardless of their localization. Therefore, a therapeutic effect can also be achieved at a stage of liver cancer in which distant metastases have already occurred.

Unfortunately, chemotherapy drugs are not particularly effective for hepatocellular carcinoma. Therefore, at least two drugs are used simultaneously. If the patient is in a good physical condition and can tolerate more intensive treatment, three drugs can be used. 

Chemotherapy is carried out in cycles. Each cycle is followed by a rest phase. One cycle lasts 2-3 weeks. The treatment regimen depends on the combination of drugs used.

Systemic chemotherapy for stage 4 liver cancer can only control the disease for a short time or shrink the size of the tumor. As a rule, the response to this treatment does not last long. Recent studies have shown that chemotherapy does not significantly affect the life expectancy of patients with liver cancer.

Regional chemotherapy


Regional chemotherapy has proven to be a more effective type of cancer treatment. The drugs are delivered directly into the area where the tumor is located. This allows for much higher dosages. However, the method also has disadvantages: the treatment is invasive, as it requires access to the hepatic artery via a catheter. It mainly targets the main tumor, but not its metastases.

The essence of the treatment method is as follows:

  1. Under the general anesthesia, the patient  undergoes a minor surgical procedure in which the hepatic artery is catheterized and a device is implanted under the abdominal skin to inject the chemotherapy drugs.
  2. The chemotherapy drugs are injected into a reservoir.
  3. They are gradually delivered into the hepatic artery with a pump.

Although high doses of drugs are used, they have little or no systemic effect and do not cause any side effects typical of chemotherapy. The reason for this is that most drugs are destroyed as they pass through the liver.

Regional chemotherapy for liver cancer is mainly used in patients with inoperable cancer as an alternative to surgery. This method allows for shrinking the size of the tumor. Sometimes the cancer becomes operable after a course of regional chemotherapy, and the doctor may try to remove the tumor so that the patient is completely cured.
