In brief: Can be subtle

The liver can suffer a lot of damage before it becomes apparent that something is wrong, which is why it is so important to be screened for common causes, like hepatitis b and c, while you feel normal.
Often early symptoms are fatigue and just not feeling well. Later symptoms of advanced cirrhosis (severe scarring) include easy bleeding, swelling, yellow skin or eyes, breasts in men, etc.
