The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) recently updated the clinical practice guidelines on management of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)(1). The guidelines provide detailed recommendations in surveillance, diagnosis, and treatments for patients with HCC, we notice there is still a void in the recommendations for pre-HCC disease, which is not yet overtly cancerous but appears to be on the way to developing a HCC. Considering the high incidence and mortality of HCC worldwide, the prevention of HCC should be a high priority consideration, and there should be more focus on the pre-HCC disease.
