Hallo Bev
One doesn't get cirrhosis of the stomach wall - you can get gastritis ( inflammation of the stomach wall) or cirrhosis (which is damage to the liver cells due to alcohol, where liver cells are replaced with scar tissue) Cirrhosis can be diagnosed with liver biopsy, CT scan, MRI scan or sonar.
