I HAVE BEEN HAVING PAIN IN MY UPPER RIGHT SIDE FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS. I WENT TO A FAMILY DOCTOR ABOUT THE TIME IT STARTED AND THEY SENT ME TO HAVE CTS. IWAS ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL FOR IV ANTIBIOTIC TREATMENT FOR SUSPECTED CROHNS DISEASE. THEY SAID THAT WASN'T IT BUT THAT I HAD A SPOT ON MY LIVER, I HAVE HAD FOUR MORE CTS ONE ULTRASOUND AND A TEST FOR MY GALLBLADDER BUT I STILL DONT KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. THE SPOT HAS GOTTEN BIGGER BUT MY SCANS SAY THE THOUGHT OF A NEOPLASMA IS NOT LIKELY IN MY AGE. BUT CANNOT BE RULED OUT. IM 25 W FEMALE BUT CAN NOT BE RULED OUT. SOMETIMES MY TBIL AND MY IRON IS ELEVATED AT TIMES BUT I CANT SEEM TO GET AN ANSWER. I ALSO HAVE HAD A FEVER AND NAUSEA ALSO I AM ALWAYS EXHAUSTED.
I agree with the workup thus far. If the CT scan is inconclusive, further imaging can be done with an MRI. Any suspicious lesions can be considered for possible biopsy for a more conclusive diagnosis.
The biliary tree can be evaluated with an MRCP or ERCP. If an ERCP is considered, the Sphincter of Oddi can be evaluated for dysfunction - which can also lead to RUQ discomfort.
If the liver enzymes are rising, obtaining a liver biopsy can be considered to exclude intrinsic liver disease.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.
