The purpose of this study is to examine whether TheraSphere is better than the current standard treatment for liver cancer (sorafenib) alone. Better means slowing or stopping the growth of liver tumors without experiencing a significant increase in number or severity of side effects. You are being asked to voluntarily participate in this study because you have been diagnosed and need treatment for a liver cancer that cannot be removed by surgery. There are no other treatments being evaluated in this study.
