I HAD A CT SCAN WITH CONTRAST DURING A HOSPITAL STAY LAST WEEK. THREE ENHANCED LESIONS WERE FOUND ON MY LIVER, EACH ABOUT 1CM . MY AST WAS 22. AN MRI WAS RECOMENDED WHEN ISEE MY PRIMARY CARE PHSYCIAN. WHAT AM I LOOKING AT?
Hi...just read your post...I too, recently had a CT Scan with contrast that revealed a lesion on my liver. I was terribly frightened....the CT Scan remarks were that it could possibly be a benign hemangioma and that an MRI was recommmended to confirm this. I had the MRI w/o contrast (couldn't stay in the machine long enough to get the contrast too) The results confirmed a benign hemangioma. Did they mention to you that that is what your lesions could be? If so...try not to worry. 1CM is not large...perhaps it's just a hemangioma you're dealing with. Do you have any symptom...pain etc? Get the MRI done....most definitely. Good luck to you. Keep us posted.
