Slow down a bit...: Ok, you have a lot of issues just recently identified. I'm doubtful you have any cancer. Your biggest concern appears to be the ovarian cyst, which is probably benign, but you need to be evaluated by your gyn. The hernia is an elective process, and the liver cyst is probably congenital. Fibroids and nabothian cyst can also be evaluated by your gyn. Take a breath and make an appointment. Good luck. ...Read more

How does cirrhosis of the liver cause an umbilical hernia?

How does cirrhosis of the liver cause an umbilical hernia?

Related: Cirrhosis of liver doesn't cause an umbilical hernia but accumulation of fluid in the abdomen known as ascites due to cirrhosis can place enough pressure on the area of umbilicus where umbilical cord came through in infancy to open up the tissue canal enough that hernia results. Drainage of the ascites fluid can occur sometimes. Best treatment is treat the ascites as surgical repair indicated. ...Read more

I have an umbilical hernia. I recently had a d-dimer done (for a different issue)and it was totally normal. Does this mean I'm clear of liver disease?

I have an umbilical hernia. I recently had a d-dimer done (for a different issue)and it was totally normal. Does this mean I'm clear of liver disease?

Not related: An umbilical hernia is just an out pouching/defect in the abdominal wall. It can be congenital (born with) or acquired - in either case, it is not diagnostically valuable in looking at liver disease. The d-dimer can be used for a couple of different illnesses, but again is not specific or sensitive for liver disease. Sorry but neither finding tell you anything about the status of your liver. ...Read more

Would I know I had liver disease through other symptoms before ascites set in? Doc listened to lungs, said sounded good but I do have umbilic hernia.

Would I know I had liver disease through other symptoms before ascites set in? Doc listened to lungs, said sounded good but I do have umbilic hernia.

No: One would not expect liver disease in a 21 year old. The major causes of liver disease, not cancerous is from alcoholic cirrhosis and from Hep B or C. Unbilical hernias on the otherhand are common place. Ascites if found would suggest a long standing situation of cirrhosis with end stage liver disease ...Read more

When a diaphragmatic hernia occurs, some of the abdominal contents, such as liver, intestines, and stomach come into chest. How then does baby breathe when born?

When a diaphragmatic hernia occurs, some of the abdominal contents, such as liver, intestines, and stomach come into chest. How then does baby breathe when born?

Depends: If the infant went through a complete pregnancy before the herniation, initial stabilization & repair can have a great outcome (normal lung development & few lung problems after infancy). If herniation occurred during pregnancy, outcome depends on how bad it impaired lung development. Early recognition at birth with placement of a stomach tube & breathing tube may give baby a chance. ...Read more
