Fatty liver in itself is not life threatening and no it's not a form of cancer but it is a disease process. One starts with fatty liver and if life style changes are not implemented the fatty liver can develop to fibrosis and finally cirhossis which can be life threatening.

Your doctor should have went over this with you but unfortunately it's been my experience that primary care doctors are not very knowledgeable when it comes to the liver and don't take fatty liver as serious as they should.

Good news is, fatty liver can be reversed with some life style changes.. Keeping to a good clean diet of lean meats, fresh fruits and veggies. Avoid simple carbs or limit them, avoid added sugars etc.. If your not already, get to a healthy weight. Excersise, even if it's only walking 30 minutes a day. If you drink alcohol, stop... All these things can help you reverse your fatty liver.
