Liver Biopsy

I had a liver biopsy but I don't understand the results.
It said 1-)Marked Macro and Microsteatosis involving approximately 80% of the  specimen                                                                                                          2-) Mild to moderate chironic triaditis                                                                                                                3-0Focal lobular inflammation.  
What does all this mean

Thank You Darlene

Hi, ‘steatosis’ means fatty infiltration and ‘itis’ means inflammation. So, basically the report states that there is fatty infiltration in the liver with inflammatory changes. Regards.

Since the report said 80% of the specimen had steatosis does that mean 80% of my liver and do I need to worry?
