LIVER ENLARGED & ECHOGENIC CONSISTENT WITH NONSPECIFIC HEPATIC PARENCHYMAL DISEASE SUCH AS STEATOSIS. NO FOCAL MASS IS SEEN.Spleen size 16cm??
See doctor: The size of the spleen is of note. This enlarges for many reasons. The liver also enlarged is of concern as well.

My doctor said they found an echogenic mass in my fetus' liver during my 20 week ultrasound. What could this mean?
The ultrasound: Report should have provided potential causes for this finding and recommendations (if any needed) for further evaluation. If it didn't then consider a more detailed fetal ultrasound at a center offering level 2 or level 3 studies. These centers have greater expertise in fetal ultrasound and can often answer questions which arise on a screening study. ...Read more

My us report read Mildy echogenic and coarsened echotexture no focal mass. Recent lfts normal platlets good at 303 albumin 4.9 ast 13 alt 14 ggt 22 ldh 131 fibroscan 5 months earlier was only 5.7 kpa. Does that mean cirrhosis now or fatty liver? My liver
Very complex questio: I would suggest that you use HealthTap Prime to set up regular visits with a knowledgeable doctor to get better guidance. 1st, the US cannot diagnose early cirrhosis. 2nd, your fibroscan results 5 mo ago were normal (in 90-95% of people), ie less than 7 kPa. 3rd, your AST to platelet ratio index (APRI) is prob less than 1, depending on the reference range in lab report. All 3 argue against cirrhos ...Read more
Unclear Question: If I understand your question correctly, you have a mass in your liver(?). Your concern is if it is Cancer. Not all liver masses are cancerous but only a proper evaluation by your doctor can find the exact nature of this mass.

8 months ago I had my GB removed and a u/s showed NO liver mass. Yesterday, I had a u/s which is now showing a small liver mass.. What could this be?

Large masses and masses "strategically" located(for example compressing the bile duct) may result in elevated bilirubin or other hepatic function test abnormalities. ...Read more
