A member asked:
I have a 1.2cm hypoechoic nodule/leison on left lobe of my liver. I also had hepatitus c and completed treatment. Also have cirrhosis & fluid building?

Needs Evaluation: The combination of hepatitis c and cirrhosis puts you at increased risk for development of hepatocellular (liver) carcinoma. The nodule in your liver might be nothing but the only way to be sure is a biopsy. Needle biopsies are usually done as an outpatient procedure under ultrasound or ct guidance.
