Cirrosis is a common misspelling of cirrhosis

Cirrhosis occurs when substantial amounts of scar tissue replace normal tissue in the liver.

People associate cirrhosis with excessive alcohol consumption, but prescription medication or even over the counter medication can damage normal liver tissue if used excessively over time.The bad part about cirrhosis is that a person may not have symptoms until liver damage is extensive.Symptoms may include:


2.fluid build up in the abdomen and/or legs

3.Jaundice (yellowing of the skin)


5.frequent infections

6.weight loss

7.muscle wasting
