fatty liver can cause cirrhosis, just like if you were an alcoholic (by the way if you drink alcohol, your fatty liver is going to get worse).
You are still young and at a good time to intervene: you should lose weight, exercise, avoid alcohol and smoking.
If your liver enzymes (blood test) are normal, then you should just f/u regularly with your primary physician, otherwise closer monitoring a possibly a liver biopsy may be needed.
