What Is Liver Cancer?

The liver is the largest internal organ in the body. It lies under the right ribs, just beneath the right lung and diaphragm (the membrane below the lungs that moves up and down as you breathe). If you were to poke your fingers up under your right ribs, you would almost be touching your liver.

The liver is shaped like a pyramid and is divided into right and left lobes. Unlike most other organs, the liver receives blood from 2 sources. The hepatic artery supplies the liver with blood that is rich in oxygen. The portal vein carries nutrient-rich blood from the intestines to the liver.

The liver performs several vital functions. It processes and stores many of the nutrients absorbed from the intestine. It also makes some of the clotting factors needed to stop bleeding from a cut or injury. And it secretes bile into the intestine to help absorb nutrients.
