In brief: No, just description

Like most dx, just a label for a pattern, as judged by whatever metrics.
Yes, there is observed relation between fatty liver ; developing liver cancer. Fatty liver most commonly due to persistent low-fat, hi-carb (i.e. All sugars, simple ; complex) foods. Liver, to protect rest of body from ?sugar (toxic), converts sugars into triglyceride fats. If can't export into external fat, then fatty liver.
