liver adneomas

I have several liver adneoma associative w taking birth control pills in my 20's. I've had inconclusive biopsy, spread out several years. I have epigastric, rt side pain, swelling  which radiates to my back constantly. I've been taking tamoxifin (tamoxifen) for 10yrs to control my estrogen, although my lab test are all normal at 55 yrs old,.even my hormone levels. One main adenomas is in my portal hepatitis. I've dealt w this for 20 yrs. Is there any studies done shown that these could turn to.cancer.  When I ask as time goes by if they will  go away , I've been told by.specialist that they have a higher chance of becoming cancerous. Is there anything to stop this or should I be thinking.of transplant. Both.my rt and lt liver has masses. Thankyou.

i strongly suggest that you see a liver specialist or hepatobiliary surgeon for their opinion. I would have hoped that the adenomas would have decreased in size over the years.  Sometimes a biopsy may be helpful as certain histologies may be more predictive of malignant transformation than others.  Also, tamoxifen has been known to lead to liver problems.  I am hopeful that you will not require a liver transplant but you should have close follow-up by an experienced doc.

I meant to add that I was advise between several Drs. Years ago I would probably need a transplant. I was wondering if my lab results are normal, do you think I should prepare myself for one, esp if the adenomas may turn to cancer. Thankyou

Thankyou for your prompt and generous answer. Since I live in MS, for you recommend any particular Medical Center/ Hospital  or should I travel elsewhere. It has been several years since I have seen a specialist. I appreciate your time.
