What are the symptoms of liver cancer?

My Dr wants me to have a scan of my liver lobe? I have elevated enzymes. I have gained about 12lbs since my last visit and I am about 35 BMI. Could the elevated enzymes be the result of my exceptionally fat ass or should I be worried about cancer? I just turned 46.
