abstract

  • FL-HCC occurs in a distinctly different population of patients than common HCC, and patients with FL-HCC generally fare better after complete resection. These tumors have a relatively indolent tumor biology, and late recurrences are common. Repeat resections for recurrence should be considered given the lack of other effective treatment options.
