Fibrolamellar cancer

Fibrolamellar cancer (also known as FLC) is a rare liver cancer that usually affects adolescents and young adults.

It is thought to occur in one in five million people, and makes up 1-5% of all liver cancers.

It is sometimes referred to as fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma. However, it differs from the most common form of primary liver cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma, in several ways – most significantly, patients with fibrolamellar do not usually have a history of liver disease.
