Liver Cirrhosis Travel Insurance
Liver Cirrhosis is an evolved stage of liver fibrosis, or liver scarring. Caused by many types of liver diseases, Cirrhosis results in the loss of liver cells and permanent scarring of the liver. The most common causes for Liver Cirrhosis are hepatitis and long-term abuse of alcohol. While Liver Cirrhosis is irreversible, treating it is a good idea because it prevents further liver damage and complications and because it makes it easier to spot Liver Cancer when it originates.
