Usually, when people speak of liver cancer, they mean a cancer that has begun somewhere else in the body and then spread to the liver. This is called metastatic disease or metastases. Due partly to its very high blood flow and local production of growth-enhancing molecules, the liver is one of the most common places for metastases to take root. Tumors that originally arise in the colon, pancreas, stomach, lung, breast, or elsewhere can spread to the liver, sometimes causing pain or damaging liver function. In the Western Hemisphere, most cases of liver cancer actually are cancers that started in another organ.
Liver cancer is a cancer which starts in the liver, as opposed to a cancer which originates in another organ and migrates to the liver, known as a liver metastasis. For a thorough understanding of liver cancer it is important to have an understanding of how the liver functions.
The liver is one of the largest organs in the body. It is located below the right lung and under the ribcage. The liver is divided into two lobes: the right lobe and the left lobe. Protein is obtained by the liver from the portal vein, which carries nutrient-rich blood from the intestines to the liver.

Most of the time when cancer is found in the liver it did not start there, but started somewhere else (like the colon, breast, or lung) and spread to the liver. This is called metastatic cancer. Even though these cancer cells are in the liver, they still look and act like cancer cells from the part of the body that they came from. If someone has lung cancer that has spread to the liver, the cancer cells in the liver are still lung cancer cells, so the person will be treated for metastatic lung cancer.
