I have upper abdominal pain and I can't get a dx.

I had a CT scan of the abdomen with the following results:

The visualized lung bases show a rather diffuse patchy groundglass opacities which are nonspecific, consider pneumonia or pneumonitis.

The left dome of the liver, there is a 6mm hypodense lesion, too small to definitively characterize, MRI is suggested.

I'm guessing I have a lesion on my liver, don't know if that's anything to worry about & I might have pneumonia.

My Doc is away until next week, so if anyone knows anything about CT scans, please give me your opinion.

I don't know if my lungs can be the cause of the abdominal pain, since I've had pneumonia 2x in the past few years and from these results, maybe I have it again.
