Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: percutaneous ethanol injection therapy
Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma who will be treated with PEIT (percutaneous ethanol injection therapy)
Procedure: PEIT
Percutaneous Ethanol Injection Therapy
Other Name: PEI, local ablation therapy

Active Comparator: radiofrequency thermal ablation
Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma who will be treated with RFTA (radiofrequency thermal ablation)

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 1,3,5 Year-Disease Free Survival (or Recurrence Free Survival) [ Time Frame: 1,3,5 year ]
    The disease free survival is defined as the total number of surviving participants without intrahepatic recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma for 1, 3, and 5 years.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Survival [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 3 years ]
    Overall Survival: Number of Participants who Died
