HHC most often occurs in people that have chronic liver diseases, such as cirrhosis cases, which can be caused by hepatitis infections or excessive consumption of alcohol.
Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver, which prevents it from working properly, explains the NHS.
So if you have a history of cirrhosis, hepatitis or fatty liver disease it is important to be aware of the symptoms.
Over 20 years between 1997 to 2016, deaths from HCC have tripled among poorer members of society, according to the National Cancer Research Institute.
There were 62,125 cases of primary liver cancer between 1997 and 2016.
