This 3cm hepatocelluar carcinoma appeared elsewhere in the liver after prior surgery for the same disease. Repeat surgery was avoided by treating this tumor by inserting a needle through the skin and killing all of the tumor. Note that there is a clean margin of dark and devascularized, dead tissue including the old tumor and the surrounding tissue.
