Us picked a spot on right liver lobe, NASH was confirmed w/o further test, just had a follow up us  shows less conspicuous spot year later, am I ok?

NASH: Is a biopsy diagnosis, not an ultrasound diagnosis. I suspect you may actually have focal fatty infiltration of the liver, which may wax and wane. However, true nash can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer, so i would pursue a liver biopsy and monitoring with repeated ultrasounds. ...Read more

Benign tumor: Hemangioma is the most common benign tumor of the liver. Small hemangiomas(like yours) cause no symptoms, and no treatment is necessary. Once the diagnosis is confirmed(e.g. with contrast enhanced MRI) it is debatable whether any follow up at all is necessary. Some physicians may recommend follow up at 6 or 12 months, ultrasound would be the simplest way to do this. ...Read more

Liver: left lobe cyst measure 2.1x1.7x2.4 CM kidney: right 11 CM  a midpole calculus  left kidney 11.6 cm.Should i be worried? Dr says it's ok

Don't worry: Cysts in the liver as long as proven to be just cysts are inconsequential. Your kidneys are fine except for the calculus. Ask for proper diet, and if needed a medicine to help dissolve it and other risks in its formation such as high uric acid or gout. Otherwise things look fine. ...Read more
