liver
I'm a 30 yr old female.  About 4 yrs ago, they found a hemangioma on liver while doing an ultrasound  fir something else.  This year they were doing another US for something else and they found 2 more.  They are in the right and left lobe.  The drs say not to worry, but i requested a follow up US.  Can they tell the difference btwn a hemangioma and cancer.  Really worried!

       Sure they can cancer can be found through blood test hemangiomas usually go away after a while but if they dont they can be removed with meds or laser.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Depending upon the echogenicity, the borders and the shadows created a near correct diagnosis can be made with imaging studies, so don't worry. This is again correlated with the liver function tests. Others which can cause similar pictures are tumors and cysts. Hemangiomas are treated only if they cause pressure symptoms. Again a follow up may be mandatory to see for changes in the lesion.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
