While travel out of the United States.......went to hospital with pain in right side very bad....Ultrasound showed a hemangioma 2.2cm..........I thought gall bladder was problem...Doc said get CT possible Acalculous Cholecystitis.....
Went to emergency room in the States.......had every test done.....told not gallbladder.
all tests fine except for this ultrasound done in the states: In short form:
Ultrasound findings: right upper quadrant demonstrates a Hyperechoic Lesion measuring 2.2cm This is in the mid portion of the liver near the Hepatic Venos Confluence. The Hyperechoic Lesion is inhomogeneous. the remainder of the Hepatic Parenchyma is unremarkable.
Impression: single hyperechoic hepatic lesion as described above. Due to inhomogeneous echogenicity, the lesion can not be proven to represent a cavernous hemangioma. I would recommend a three phase imaging study of the liver utilizing either ct or mri with contrast.
Now....i did have a ct but not with contrast and told it showed nothing.
I was given pain meds and then on follow up a week later it had calmed down and was told nothing was wrong with me and that nothing is done for a hemangioma, good bye.
I still have pain and will be starting to take pain meds again. Although it's not sending me to the emergency room...i feel it will happen again.....the pain is constant and annoying.
Any advice.......thank you.....
