I am 29 yr old female diagnosed with probable fnh tumor 2yrs ago. My latest mri showed 3 new flash filling tumors with rapid washout in left and middle lobe. Mri states ddx fnh, hcc. Adenoma not typical. My gastro says wait six months to see if they grow. Do fnh multiply during clinical follow up. Can I have fnh and hcc? Is it safe to wait six months for imaging? No hep c or contraceptive use. Past alcohol abuse. Please any info would be great!
unless you are taking birth control pills, FNH shouldnt multiple like this theoretically. IThe description of them does sound like FNH however. Please make sure that the MRI used eovist contrast--if not the next one should. I think waiting for 3 months looking for any interval change is reasonable.
Thank you. No contaceptive history however mri used omniscan. I will request Eovist. It has all ready been 3 months. My PCP agrees with you and she is setting me up with new imaging you suggested. Thank you so much. I think it is great how you help people : )
