Brief Answer: Doesn't look like hepatitis or cancer Detailed Answer: Hello, Welcome to XXXXXXX If hepatitis tests are negative then possibility of hepatitis is unlikely.Also MRI would have show cancer, so even that possibility is unlikely. Liver parameters can be raised by various cause interfering liver functioning and even medications taken for other reasons can cause elevated liver parameters. Billiary stones or obstruction in bile duct also cause such raised tests. Ideal is to get further investigated and see gastroenetrologist for this. Hope this answers your questions.Regards
