Only a CT or MRI scan with contrast can tell what the mass is. There are many types of masses that can be found in the liver. The scan is the only way to tell if it is benign or cancer.
You will have to wait for the results.
Do you have hepatitis B?
Do you have hepatitis C and cirrhosis of the liver?
I am in Germany and the hepatologist at uni-hospital told me , I am having 3 - leision , it could be anything from tumor to cancer to harmless stuff.
Yesterday I went to inner-medician general physician and he told me as I am having fatty lever, those spots/leision are the area where fat is not seen on liver and i.e. its harmless stuff... I even ask him if I go for CT- MRI scan and he said its useless to do so....
nevertheless the Dr. / hepatologist has given me an appointment for CT-SCAN, MRI and in the end with biopsy next week on 6th of Feb.
* I have a fatty liver
* I had contact with HEP A
* No current HEP virus ( all are -NEG )
* values of GAMMA GT and GOT are high as to me know since last 10 years.
I am 10 days post-op from having liver surgery. The doctor removed a 10 cm mass off my right lobe, and a 4 cm mass off my left lobe. The masses are non cancerous and are called Hemangiomas. I actually have 3 more but they are small and have not changed through 2 years of monitoring. Hemangiomas are common in woman and they believe they grow from hormones. We monitored them through ct scans, MRI and ultrasounds. You NEVER have these biopsied because they are a large cluster of blood vessels and they can bleed. Good luck and I hope you find out answers soon.
