Cirrhosis is a condition in which the liver does not function properly due to long term damage. It is a serious condition where healthy tissue in the liver is destroyed and replaced by scar tissue, which starts to block the flow of blood through your liver. Cirrhosis progresses slowly, over many years and gradually causing your liver to stop functioning. This is called liver failure. The damage caused by cirrhosis is permanent so cannot be reversed. Chronic alcoholism and hepatitis C are the most common causes.
