In brief: Signs of Cirrhosis
There are many "signs" or physical findings of cirrhosis.
These include: spider angiomata (small spider like blood vessels on the skin, see picture), clubbing of the fingers, palmar erythema (reddening of the palms), gynecomastia (enlargement of the breasts in males), enlargement of the liver and spleen, ascites (accumulation of fluid in the abdomen), jaundice (yellowing of skin) and many more.

In brief: Can vary
Cirrhosis can sometimes be asymptomatic, but signs like fluid build up in the abdominal cavity (ascites), easy bruising, jaundice and symptoms of decreased appetite, fatigue, feeling sleepy or confused (hepatic encephalopathy) can occur. Your liver doctor can help manage and control the above signs/symptoms as they occur at different rates.
