Possibly unrelated: If a lesion of liver found especially in presence of 3 small lung lesions, dx should have been determined by needle bx of liver under sono guidance and if positive then PET/CAT to see any association of liver, lung, brain. If no change after 2 yrs bx might still be indicated because of unusual presentation, but probably benign
