Can't name them all: Here, but right upper abdominal pain, nausea, weight loss, jaundice, aversion to cigarette smoke, easy bruising. Signs of liver failure are abdominal fluid collection, GI bleeding, neurologic signs, palmar erythema, spider like red rash. Liver damage is serious problem, because you can't live without this organ.
