Hello and thanks for writing.

There are treatments to help manage liver cancer (HCC) but I would think those services would only be available at the most advanced hospitals in the country. Here in the US these services are primarily available at large teaching hospitals in large cities. Since cancer is such a serious condition I would suggest you go to the largest and most prestige cancer hospital that you possibly can. It may be better to travel to Riyadh if you can, as I assume they will have the latest cancer medical technologies and services in the country available there.

From my Internet searches I found.. King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre in Riyadh. It appears to be one of the best hospitals with the most services and the latest technology in the country. At least contact them and tell them of your situation. At minimum they should be able to direct you to where services are available either with themselves or at other hospitals.

" The King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre is a 985-bed tertiary/quaternary care and referral hospital based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It is the national referral center for oncology, organ transplantations, cardiac surgery, genetic diseases, and more."
