This is tricky: You need a biopsy to be certain, but since cirrhosis is really just the later stages of ongoing liver damage, the real question is whether you have progressive liver disease. If you have untreated Wilson's, hemochromatosis, hep b or c, autoimmune hepatitis, cannot stop drinking, have fatty liver and are not exercising, you need to save your life now. Best wishes.
