Symptoms

Many people with cirrhosis have little or no clinical evidence of disease. Symptoms may not emerge until significant scarring of the liver has occurred.

Symptoms may be nonspecific and include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Confusion and difficulty concentrating
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Itching
  • Abdominal swelling (from ascites, a build-up of fluid in the abdomen)
  • Jaundice
  • Easy bleeding and bruising
  • Leg swelling
  • Nausea
  • Weight loss and loss of appetite
