Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver caused by long-term liver damage. The scar tissue prevents the liver working properly.

Cirrhosis can eventually lead to liver failure, where your liver stops working, which can be fatal.
But it usually takes years for the condition to reach this stage and treatment can help slow its progression.

There’s currently no cure for cirrhosis. But it’s possible to manage the symptoms and any complications, and slow its progression.
