Aim: Hepatocellular carcinoma is the sixth most ordinary tumor in world. In Pakistan, its repeat has expanded because of the viral sickness hepatitis C. Epidermal development viewpoint assumes a significant function in the recuperation of hepatocytes and has accepted a part in the danger of movement. Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of genotype G/G has been related with an expanded danger of HCC arrangement. The motivation behind this survey was to examine the connection between EGF polymorphism and HCC in HCV cases. Methods: Our current research was conducted at Lahore General Hospital, Lahore from March 2019 to February 2020. Routine testing for cirrhosis of the liver and HCC, just as EGF genotyping were performed on two sets; cases having HCV-associated cirrhosis and cases having once again tried HCC for cirrhosis, while reference set accomplished EGF genotyping. Results: EGF 63*G evaluation polymorphism was otherworldly in HCC cases. G/G had highest Center comparative with the A/An and A/G genotypes, through tremendous quantifiable centrality among sets dissected in entirety and consistency (p < 0.0002). Conclusion: The quality polymorphism of EGF 62*G was related to the subjective idea of HCC. Likewise, the general blend of EGF stayed distinguished through the G/G genotype. Key words: Association EGF Polymorphism, HCC, HCV Patients.
