Hypodensity of left liver lobe 3mm found on ct scan
Hi, I had a ct scan. for uterine fibroids-- anyway, report came back and it mentioned a 3mm hypodensity on left liver lobe. I also had some hypodensity on ovary, and my fibroid, which my gyn. already knew about.. anyway, MY concern was not the fibroids, but the liver hypodensity. The report suggested Uterine Ultrasound (which my gyn. did not order, cause we know the drill) and a ct. scan of liver in 3 months!!!!!!
I had elevated enzymes last Memorial Day, after a virus, ( I believer the Swine Flu)... and was tested all summer for enzymes, which came down. Was retested in Jan. 10, and normal.
I brought this report to the gastro . dr. and the nurse is going to have the dr. read and get back to me on Monday. She looked at my chart and said all my last tests were all normal.
Should I be concerned????? My tests said the liver was of normal size. I had an ultra-sound last summer and it came back normal....
Can I have a glass of wine/ beer? I am afraid at this point!!!!!!! I am social drinker.. My reg. dr. got the report and was not concerned, my Gyn. was not concerned.... so WHY am I freaking out?
My gastro. sent me for a AFP, I got freaked out... bloodwork for cancer... I then asked if I had that done before... when I had liver enzyme issues last summer, due to a virus ( cold type).... I did have the test! It was normal in June... so, I am just hoping / praying!!!!
I have to have had the AFT test, they use it as a tumor marker, it is an indicator but not a diagnostic test. AFP can be elevated for other reasons than cancer. It is just part of the watchful eye I mentioned earlier. I would be concerned if your doc didn't test you for it.
