Testicular Atrophy and Cirrhosis with Alcoholic Hepatitis

No, testicular atrophy dosen't always indicate cirrhosis. The testicles cannot atrophy because they are not muscles. A diseased liver really has nothing to do with the testicles anyway. Cirrhosis is the term used to describe a diseased liver that has been severely scarred, usually due to many years of continuous injury.

    * Chronic hepatitis (B or C)
    * Longstanding alcohol abuse
    * Autoimmune hepatitis (a condition in which the body's immune system recognizes the liver as foreign)
    * Primary sclerosing cholangitis (a disease of the large bile ducts)
    * Primary biliary cirrhosis (a disease of the small bile ducts)
    * Wilson's disease (a rare disease of copper metabolism)
    * Schistosomiasis (a parasitic disease common in developing countries)
    * Biliary atresia (a disease of the bile ducts in children)
    * Rare diseases such as galactosemia and glycogen storage disease
    * Hemochromatosis (a condition in which there is too much iron in the body)
    * Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (a condition in which fat and scar tissue accumulate in the liver for poorly understood reasons)
SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS—Because of the underlying cause of the liver disease some Peoples with cirrhosis may have symptoms related to this,
symptoms directly related to the cirrhosis, or no symptoms at all.
