Experts are calling for more targeted standards in developing countries to help diagnose and treat risk factors for liver cancer.  It's currently the second most deadly form of cancer worldwide.

Liver cancer accounts for some 750,000 deaths a year globally.  Experts say only pancreatic cancer accounts for more deaths.

In Western countries, liver cancer typically strikes middle age men over 60, who drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes.
