What Are The Symptoms of Liver Cirrhosis?

Cirrhosis of the liver can present with various symptoms, but some common ones include:

  • Fatigue
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
  • Abdominal pain or discomfort, especially in the upper right side
  • Swelling in the abdomen and legs (edema)
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Easy bruising and bleeding
  • Confusion or changes in mental alertness (hepatic encephalopathy)
  • Dark urine and pale stools

It’s important to note that not everyone with cirrhosis experiences all of these symptoms, and some individuals may not have any noticeable symptoms until the disease has progressed significantly. If you suspect you or someone you know may have cirrhosis, it’s crucial to seek medical evaluation and guidance for proper diagnosis and management.
