Hepatobiliary cancers are aggressive tumors that affect the liver and biliary tract and are responsible for nearly 550,000 deaths per year. The most common malignancy is hepatocellular carcinoma, and risk factors include viral hepatitis infection, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, and excessive alcohol use. Other etiologies include Wilson’s disease, α1-antitrypsin deficiency, and cryptogenic cirrhosis. Clinicians should be aware of underlying conditions and how they influence treatment decisions.
