Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis is a condition that causes the liver to deteriorate slowly over time. Cirrhosis occurs when healthy tissue turns into scar tissue, partially blocking the flow of blood in the liver. During the early stages of this condition, most patients do not experience symptoms. Cirrhosis is diagnosed by reviewing medical and family history, a physical exam, blood test, imaging tests, or a liver biopsy.
