Our topic, Hepatobiliary tumors.
We'll talk about those tumors that may be located
in the liver maybe tumors
are located in the biliary system.

what is benign and what is malignant.

such as colorectal cancer to the liver,
Or yet a primary liver cancer
that will then metastasize
from the liver most likely to the lung.
