i'm 23, surely i haven't shot my liver yet.
so babies have shot livers when they are born? babies are commonly jaundiced for a few days after birth.

but i'm not a baby and the most common cause of jaundice is liver failure for those who aren't babies.

You'd want to get that checked out, as has been said could be an sign of liver failure.

There are many causes, ranging from fairly uncritical infection to cancer. Being 23 we can rule out the cancer part. I would simply wait it out for a week and see where it goes.

Being 23, cancer is still a very real risk. It could be liver cancer, or pancreatic cancer. Pray its not pancreatic, since thats pretty well the most deadly form. Also, if you are at the stage where pancreatic cancer is causing Juandice, you're pretty well screwed.

It could also be galstones blocking the common bile duct. Also a fairly serious problem.

Of course it could also be nothing... I am no Dr. :D

Go see a real one ASAP.

Damnit, it's not pancreatic cancer! The stress you're causing the fella by saying that is probably worse than whatever he has. There are less than 50 cases under age 30 in the US each year. By those odds it's more likely he has an alien ass probe in his anus, so he should worry about that first. Cancer has exponential risk with age, digestive system cancer in particular is a 40+ disease.

I'll be sure to pass all that detailed info along to the Pediatric Oncologists I work with. They will be bummed to know they need to quit their job because those kids more likely have anal probes up their asses than cancer. Oh how we misdiagnosed all those poor children...Had we just looked in their asses!
