About Brain Tumor

Jaundice is a condition produced when excess amounts of bilirubin circulating in the blood stream dissolve in the subcutaneous fat (the layer of fat just beneath the skin), causing a yellowish appearance of the skin and the whites of the eyes.


  • itching.
  • dark urine.
  • pale stools.
  • loss of appetite.
  • weight loss.
  • fever.
  • mental changes such as tiredness or confusion.
  • abdominal pain.


If you have acute viral hepatitis, jaundice will go away on its own as your liver heals. If a blocked bile duct is to blame, your doctor may suggest surgery to open it. If your skin is itching, your doctor can prescribe cholestyramine to be taken by mouth.


Your doctor may order blood and urine tests. These allow your doctor to check your level of bilirubin and assess the health of your liver. They may also order an ultrasound, MRI or CT scan to check for blockages. These can also be used to check for signs of liver and pancreatic disease.
