Possibly: The most common cause of a gastric lesion, when associated with liver lesions is a gastric malignancy. Gastroscopy and biopsy should be performed. This should be followed by a PET/CAT fi gastric bx is +. Scan will guide as to whether liver lesions are benign or malignant. Regardless, a gastric neoplasm should be resected and later the liver lesions can be addressed for chemoembolization.
