I am 31 year old female in good health. I recently had blood tests done as I was experiencing dizziness,turned out to be ear infection but then results came back that liver functions levels were extremely high. so was sent for ultrasound, spot found on liver in exact place where i have felt uncomfortable pain for 5 years since having my second daughter. Was sent to consultant gastreo--something and he said likely to be adenoma, sent for ct scan, results back now saying large liver lesion so they have sent my results for liver specialist to look at... and now im waiting to hear something...very worried any advice what does this mean??? cancer??
Most liver lesions are benign. If your doctor is diagnosing it as an adenoma, liver adenomas are NOT cancers, so that's a good thing.
Liver cancer usually occurs as either a secondary metastasis, or as a primary cancer it occurs in people with specific liver diseases or exposures (hemochromatosis, hepatitis, alfatoxin exposure to name a few) -- being that you are 31 years old and in good health, it would be highly unlikely for your mass to be cancer. I hope your liver specialist gives you good news, and best wishes. Hope that helps. ~eureka
