Whenever: Whenever there's doubt about the nature of a lesion in the liver, biopsy is a pretty good way of sorting it out. Liver biopsy is a common procedure and one that can be done with little pain and little risk. It sounds like, in your case, the best modality for doing a biopsy (if it's necessary) would be ultrasound guidance.

That said, it's certainly better if one can make a diagnosis on the basis of imaging studies. It sounds like your doctor is doing his or her best to make that happen. There are a lot of things that can look funny in the liver and yet be benign. The fact that the larger lesion isn't showing up on ct is a good sign, especially if you had what's called a multiphase study. Multiphase studies are very sensitive for subtle abnormalities. If the MRI also shows nothing there, then you probably don't need anything more. ...Read more

I have been checked for fibroids and hormone imbalance both are good is there another reason I spot during ovulation time ultra sound was clear?

I have been checked for fibroids and hormone imbalance both are good is there another reason I spot during ovulation time ultra sound was clear?

Multiple causes: Irregular spotting can be due to multiple reasons. An ultrasound would not be the best way to check for pathology on the inside of your uterus (i.e. polyp) that can cause bleeding. A sonohystogram or HSG or hysteroscopy would be better test for that. In addition, estrogen levels drop briefly around the time of ovulation so that can lead to some spotting. Also, is your Pap smear normal? ...Read more

My ultra sound revealed 3 small fibroids and no thickening of uterus. I am 55 and in early menopause and still spot. How often should I have ultsound?

1-2x/year, or as nee: Depending on where the fibroids are (if not involving the inside lining/endometrium) - they probably aren't causing the spotting, the thin lining is very reassuring that u don't have endometrial cancer. If you continue to have spotting, then periodic (annual or 2x/yr) sono's may be helpful. If it bothers u (spotting) then u could look into tx's (an ablation, or other procedure). ...Read more
