"From 2004-2006 to 2013-2014, number of HCC patients from the 1945-1965 birth cohort increased by 58%, and in 2013-2014, the 1945-1965 birth cohort represented 26.4% of all HCC patients.......We are seeing an increase for non-hispanic whites with HCC within the baby boomer cohort but also seeing a similar increase among minorities including hispanic, african americans and native americans (57% to 67% increases among these groups) ............ liver cancer is showing an unfavorable trend and liver cancer death rates are increasing at the highest rate of all cancer sites among both men and women.
 
This is despite CDC recommendations for HCV screening in baby boomers, est in 2012 and by USPSTF in 2013.....The proportion of HCC patients within Milan Criteria increased from 36.4% in 2004-2006 to 46.3% in 2013-2014"
