What are other types of primary liver cancers?

Other, less common primary liver cancers include the following:

  • Cholangiocarcinoma – a cancer that originates in the lining of the bile channels in the liver or in the bile ducts.
  • Hepatoblastoma – a common cancer in infants and children, sometimes causing the release of hormones that result in early puberty.
  • Angiosarcoma – a rare cancer that originates in the blood vessels of the liver.
