herbals won't do anything to this questionable HCC. just because your AFP went up doesnt mean you have cancer although it is suspicious particularly if it was normal in the recent past.
you need a good MRI of the liver and / or CT of the liver.
there are certain criteria for liver transplant, you should go to a transplant center and get their opinion after reviewing your images and labs
