Bio

Dr. Anne Larson received her BS & MD from the University of Washington (UW) and did her residency in Internal Medicine there, moving to San Diego for subspecialty training in Gastroenterology. She then did a further year of subspecialty training in Hepatology/Liver Transplantation at the UW, and then joined the faculty in July 1997.

She has returned to the UW as faculty and continues to care for patients with all types of liver disease.

Talk with your MD: There are many causes of liver lesions, both benign and malignant. It is likely the repeat scan that you are having done is to determine what type of lesion they are. Your doctor will tell you more when the scans are done. Sometimes biopsy of the lesion is needed to figure out what it is. If you have no risk factors for malignant liver lesions, they are most likely benign.

It's variable.: Stage 4 means cirrhosis. Grade 2 means there is inflammation in the liver. Survival is greatly improved it the hepatitis B is treated - there are medicines for this. You should be seeing a specialist for this and consider treatment.
