Liver Hypodensity

I checked the ct scan results in my patient portal, prior to a follow up check up I have tomorrow. The radiologist noted no change to a <.6 hypodensity that apparently has been there since 3/2021. What does that mean? Should I be concerned? . I’ve been getting scans every 6 months since 2020 (nhl survivor) and this is the first time this hypodensity was noted. What could be the cause? What does it mean?

Hello, I answered your newest question and  now see why you have the concern about liver cancer and how quickly it will spread. Quite often, this type of hypodensity can be caused by a cyst and found in fatty livers. Have you been diagnosed with either of these?

No, I haven’t been diagnosed with either one. In fact , a previous scan said no cysts when it came to my liver. No one has said anything to me about this hypodensity in a year in a half. Would the radiologists be able to tell if it looked like cancer? Or would the hypodensity in general have required them to look further/recommend further testing? …. Now I’m really concerned….
