Dear Asif, this is nothing serious and there is no reason to concern. especially if you dont have any symptoms. Fatty liver is a common ultrasound finding especially at age >50. It is usually associated with raised blood lipids, obesity and alcoholism but often there is no specific cause. You should also check your liver enzymes. Some people are afraid of having liver cirrhosis after they find fatty liver but there is a long way from fatty liver to cirrhosis. You just need to care about your nutrition (avoid alcohol, fatty food and do sport) and control your liver function (US and enzymes) once a year.

Wish you good health, Dr. Ivan Romic (Rominho)
