What does a spot on your liver mean?

What does a spot on your liver mean?

Many things: It could something as simple as a benign cyst, blood vessel malformation (hemagioma), other benign tumors (such as adenoma, nodular hyperplasia) or something as bad as a cancer (which could represent a metastasis or a primary liver cancer). You need more details, and preferably a ct scan or MRI with contrast for better information. ...Read more

Ct scan showed spot on liver, have colon cancer but ultrasound came back negative does it mean it was wrong?

Ct scan showed  spot on liver, have colon cancer but ultrasound came back negative does it mean it was wrong?

Pet or MRI may help: Other imaging modalities may help further clarify if this finding in ct is suspicious for malignancy or more likely benign if the ct and ultrasound have not been more specific. If u have older ct scans to compare and this is indeed new, then further clarification is needed. This all has to be taken into context of the bigger clinical picture including cea as well as the rest of your body. ...Read more

New spot found on liver thru ct.Early bt show increase liver enzymes.Us show fullness kidney & cyst on gallbladder.What     does this mean?

Hard to say: Have you had a colonoscopy? It is hard to say what the spot on your liver is without looking at your films... This could be a simple cyst, but if it is new, it could be a colon cancer (or other kind of tumor). You need a proper exam, including a colonoscopy if you haven't had one yet. If that is negative, it may require a biopsy. ...Read more

My mother has liver spots. Should I be worried for what this means?

My mother has liver spots. Should I be worried for what this means?

Lentigos or seb k's: There are two common skin spots that are often called liver spots, although neither is related to liver disease. The lentigo is like a dark freckle and can vary a lot in size and shape. They can respond to cryotherapy or bleaching. Seborrheic keratoses can look similar but are more varied in color and are usually raised. They often look warty. Cryotherapy may clear these, bleaching doesn't help. ...Read more

I have liver spot and i've tried using ointment that works but only temporarily. Are there any other remedies?

I have liver spot and i've tried using ointment that works but only temporarily. Are there any other remedies?

Laser: If these are sunspots (lentigines), ipl is the most elegant treatment. If they are seborrheic keratosis, cryotherapy or curettage will work well. Topical bleaching creams have a modest result and otc are minimally impressive. Best to have it checked to make sure it is benign and a dermatologist can discuss best treatments. ...Read more

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
