I was told today that my mum may have liver disease. She hardly ever drinks but her blood tests show that she has the liver of a seveare alcoholic. She is going to see a consultant tomorrow but I am confused and worried.

Does this mean cancer or can it turn into cancer? As her only daughter, would I be looked to for a transplant if that was needed? Is it treated by medication?

I dont know what to think or do for her.

Just a little bit of advice in real person talk would come in handy!

  • Hey...I'm sorry no one replied to your thread yet, Idk the answer to your question but I hope you get some answers soon...my two sense would be that jumping to the conclusion of liver cancer is a bit hasty...they could be many other possible causes of her liver condition. Does she often take tylenol or ibuprofen, like a few every week? That would do it...
