Hepatocellular disease of the liver may either be an infection of the liver or cancer of the liver.

The liver is one of the biggest and most important organs in the body. It is located just below the right rib cage and stands as the powerhouse or the engine of the body. It facilitates metabolism and improves the breakdown of many substances.

Despite the functions and importance of the liver to the human body, it can be affected by infections, drugs and other toxic chemicals. Most of the abnormalities of the liver are always transient or acute because the liver has a great healing power. Unlike all these other diseases, hepatocellular disease can last very long in the body accompanied with severe symptoms. Most of the symptoms of diffuse hepatocellular liver disease include the following:

Discoloration of the skin and eyes; your eyes may begin to turn yellowish

Persistent abdominal pain

Distention of the abdomen

Severe itching of the skin

Dark colored or tea colored urine

Pale stools

Intermittent blood in the stools

Extreme weakness

Nausea, and

Loss of appetite

Having learnt the symptoms of the hepatocellular disease of the liver, it will also help if you understand that the things that can cause this disease are mainly in the form of disorders. Conditions that might increase or lead to the risk of liver disease include the following:

-Exposure to infected body fluids or blood
