Fatty liver: A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you about the fatty liver. If alcohol is not the cause dietary advice and follow-up will be important. As for the enlarged prostate, if you're not experiencing urinary difficulties and if no first degree relatives (father, brother) have or had prostate cancer, at this time I believe you can sit tight. A urologist is best to evaluate you
