The presentation of HCC has evolved significantly over the past few decades. Whereas in the past, HCC generally presented at an advanced stage with common presentation as right-upper-quadrant pain, weight loss, and signs of de compensated liver disease, it is now increasingly recognized at a much earlier stage as a consequence of the routine screening of patients with known cirrhosis. We presented 3 rare clinical presentation for patient with metastatic HCC, first one to the nasal alae which very rare no reported cases as such, 2nd one to the parotid which also rare but there are few reported cases, and the 3rd one although spinal cord compression can occur with metastatic HCC but as first presentation with spinal cord compression is also rare.
