Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC or hepatoma) is one of the most common malignancies. Worldwide, the annual incidence is nearly 1 million and it causes an estimated 1,250,000 deaths every year. There is striking geographic variation, the highest rates being found in China, Southeast Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa (>20, and up to 100/100,000 males per year). The lowest rates (<5/100,000 males per year) are found in Northern Europe, North America, and Latin America [1].
