Jaundice

Hi.

My friend thinks that he has jaundice. He always believe that his eyes

don't have their normal color; tend to appear a little bit yellowish and his

arms look pale also. But, he lives well. He went to more than one clinic,

and he got out with one cause of these symptoms. It's something like a

cyst or an accumulation in the liver ( bile maybe ) Rolling Eyes . He has two

options of treatment; surgery to remove the accumulation, or by

medications.




Do you have any idea about this?

Thanks everybody

So, are you saying your friend has a diseased liver?

Hi Miller, what I understood of him it's jaundice, could be something with

his liver also. Rolling Eyes

Has your friend had a liver function test? How was the diagnosis achieved? Ultrasound, Cat scan?? If he has a blockage in the bile ducts it could be caused by stones(or other things). Sometimes the fluid collections can be drained by inserting a drainage catheter rather than surgery.
It's really hard to know what's going on with little information and I'm not a physician who can give you true expert medical advice.

Hi martybarker, I don't think that he has any of those test. I'll call him for

more details.

Thanks for being here.
