Is cirrhosis of the liver cancer?

No, but raises risk. Cirrhosis describes the scarring that occurs when the liver has been damaged by hepatitis or alcohol use. Cirrhosis is not cancer, but it is a strong risk factor for the development of liver cancer. In fact, any person with cirrhosis should undergo regular screening to detect the development of cancer. Guidelines recommend a liver ultrasound every 6 months in patients with cirrhosis.
No it is not. Cirrhosis is not cancer.It is caused by chronic liver disease characterized by replacement of liver tissue by scar tissue and regenerative nodules leading to loss of liver function. You are at risk to develop liver cancer if you have liver cirrhosis.
