What does a spot on your liver mean?

Many things

Transjugular_intrahepatic_portosystemic_shunt
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.

Dr. Chad Levitt answered:

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

Computed_tomography
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.

Dr. Sabha Ganai answered:

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

Kidney
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.

Spot on liver, what can cause spotting on your liver?

Not sure

Spotting
Do you mean that a lesion was seen on/in your liver during some sort of abdominal imaging? If so they are tests that can be performed to accurately diagnosis it which is important because you want to make sure it is not cancer (which is rare in those without preexisiting liver disease)

Dr. Susanne L. Gee answered:

Is a liver spot found during an ultrasound anything to worry about?

It depends

Sonogram
'Liver spot' is an old-fashioned term which refers to sun spots or sun damage on the skin. They have nothing to do with the liver. Sun spots or lentigos are usually benign, but if the pigment is very dark, they can be malignant and should be examined by a dermatologist.
