Hi, i'm a 38 year old female who was just diagnosed with a fatty liver and a 2-3cm lesion. At first my dr. thought it was just a hemangioma but after an ultrasound and mri it's still inconclusive. All my bloodwork has come back negative for cancer, hepatitis etc and my enzymes are not elevated. I can't lie and say I'm not worried because I am. I go for a consult on Thursday and hopefully the biopsy very soon after. I'm not scared to have the biopsy but of course of what the results might be.
Has anyone else gone through this? I rarely drink, do not take any drugs and do not share needles etc. I have however for the past few years eaten a horrible diet and am about 30lbs overweight and I am now addressing both these things that are entirely my fault.
Please, any help would be appreciated!
Thank you!
