Mildly enlarged liver 18cm echogenicity and contour normal all blood work normal. Could this just be my normal liver size? How enlarged is 18 cm?

Mildly enlarged liver 18cm echogenicity and contour normal all blood work normal. Could this just be my normal liver size? How enlarged is 18 cm?

Maybe.: How large are you? If you are small or average height and weight then your liver is mildly enlarged. If you are a taller and heavier person, then your liver size could be your normal. With the normal bloodwork and ultrasound, I would not expect that you would need a biopsy in the absence of other symptomatology. ...Read more

It lies below the diaphragm in the abdominal-pelvic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion via the emulsification of ...Read more

See GI doctor...: You need to see a GI doctor, if you haven't already. It's difficult to know what is wrong with the description given. You need to have an imaging study of your abdomen/pelvis, meaning a CT scan and/or an ultrasound. Depending on what those studies reveal, you may need to have a liver biopsy performed. These tests will likely diagnose the problem. ...Read more

Ct scan to investigate possible lyphoma came back normal but liver size was at top of normal size range. Shud I worry about this? Sign of lymphoma?

Ct scan to investigate possible lyphoma came back normal but liver size was at top of normal size range. Shud I worry about this? Sign of lymphoma?

Probably not: The diagnosis of lymphoma is very complex and relies on a constellation of clinical signs and symptoms including unexplained weight loss, night sweats, lack of appetite, fatigue, progressively enlarging lymph nodes, progressively enlarging liver and/or spleen, etc., confirmed by biopsy. If none of these signs is present, the diagnosis is unlikely. Consulting your physician is recommended. ...Read more

I had fatty liver, lost weight second scan result (Liver normal size, shape, echotexture. No gallstone), is fatty liver gone? But bilirubin 47 ALT 134

Not sure.: Without seeing all of the liver test results, it is difficult to comment on what may be happening. Obviously, with your ALT elevated, there is still something wrong. I would return to your gastroenterologist for further explanation and evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more

Can we Rx hep C?: If your hepatitis c can be treated / managed, the cirrhosis is likely to regress some. You'd be doing yourself a favor. If the gallstone is in the gall-bladder & not an issue, you may consider leaving it alone. Talk with your physician about whether your hepatitis c might be infectious to any partner. Be strong and stay proactive. ...Read more

What is the meaning of " liver is normal size with homogeneous parenchyma. Nofocal mass is seen."?

That is good news..: Normal size is good. Homogenous=all areas look similar. Parenchyma here just mean the liver tissue itself. No focal mass means no mass is seen in any area. All of these are just fancy words telling you that you have a normal liver based on the ultrasound findings.
So, this is actually good news.
Consult doc and good luck. ...Read more

What do you mean by " the liver is normal in size and configuration. It exhibits coarsened parenchymal echopattern and smooth external outline."?

What do you mean by " the liver is normal in size and configuration. It exhibits coarsened parenchymal echopattern and smooth external outline."?

Normal but bumpy.: This is from an ultrasound exam of your liver. The outline of your liver is smooth, and its size and shape are normal. But the texture of your liver is coarse, or bumpy. This can mean some scarring of the liver, cirrhosis from alcohol, chronic hepatitis, or just a "fatty" liver. There are other rare causes. It helps to know the whole story. Why you had the test in the first place! Ask your doc. ...Read more

CT SCAN of abdomen says, the dome of the liver is partially excluded. The liver is normal in size and attenuation, on noncontrast image. What does it mean?

CT SCAN of abdomen says, the dome of the liver is partially excluded. The liver is normal in size and attenuation, on noncontrast image. What does it mean?

Didn't get to see it: "Excluded" means it wasn't in the pictures. Somehow, the tech or someone made a mistake and didn't get enough pictures. The abdomen starts at the diaphragm (which covers the top, or dome, of the liver on the right side). A CT of the abdomen should go from the diaphragm through the pelvis. However, in your case they started lower down - missing the top (or dome) of the liver. ...Read more
