Response from Dr. McGovern
Fatty liver is becoming very common in the US and elsewhere due to obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol and high triglycerides.
It will be important to have evaluation for this by a hepatologist. Simply fatty liver can be benign; however, inflammation with fatty liver can lead to scarring.
