This non-interventional cross-sectional online survey will evaluate preferences among patients with self-reported HCC. The survey will ask patients to express their preferences regarding descriptions of HCC treatments, which will include sorafenib (which will be described as 'oral anti-cancer therapy'), repeated transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), and hepatic arterial infusion chemotherapy (HAIC). Please note that all interventions that patients may have received before completing this online survey were given regardless of their participation in this survey. Questions also include asking patients to rank various treatment characteristics (e.g., mechanism of action, risk of adverse effects, etc.) relative to each other. The ultimate goal is to better understand patient perceptions of these treatments and to provide evidence to help in patients' and physicians' treatment decision-making in HCC.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)
A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.
A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
