7.2 cm tumor found in my liver which grew from a 5.8 cm tumor 2 weeks prior.

i was diagnosed with fatty liver disease 2 years ago. I recently had an ultrasound which found a 5.8 cm lesion in my liver. 2 weeks later I had an MRI which found the lesion had grown to 7.2 cm. They've scheduled a biopsy. What are the chances it is cancer?

Can you paste the impression of the MRI report so we can help interpret? Usually biopsy is only recommended if the findings are indeterminate or suspicious so there is high probability the mass is a tumor. The biopsy will further characterize if benign versus malignant.
