Hi It could still be cirrhosis or non cirrhotic portal fibrosis. But age goes in favor of cirrhosis. Ultrasound is better to pick cirrhosis than CT. If varices are large, one can go ahead with endoscopic banding. It's definitely treatable however may not be curable. Please meet Gastroenterologist or hepatologist. Regards Dr Adarsh CK
