I had an untrasound and one of the results is this: "Trace fluid adjacent to the right hepatic lobe may reflect small parihepatic fluid or trace right pleural effusion"
I would like to know what does that mean? Is that a big emergency? I have pain in the back. Is that cancer? Could you please give me an advice.

Hello there,
What symptoms are you having? A collection of fluid around the liver can be due to a number of causes. The fluid could be ascites blood, urine, chyle, bile, pancreatic juice or pus. This fluid can be due to any trauma, obstruction of bile duct, infection, abscess, cirrhosis, autoimmune diseases, heart failure etc.Pneumonia, kidney and liver disease, heart failure and autoimmune diseases all can have pleural effusion. A clinical correlation is very important for confirming the diagnosis.Discuss this report with your gastroenterologist and get your doubts clarified. I hope it helps. Keep me posted.
Take care and regards!
