It was found that I had a liver lesion a year and a half ago. It measured approx 1.75cms. I had an ultrasound (where it was found) and then a CT scan which were both inconclusive in diagnosing if it was cancer or not. I was referred to a liver clinic at a hospital where i saw a specialist. The specialist stated they thought that given my age (27yo) that it is unlikely cancerous however they would do an MRI to confirm. I had the MRI and the report stated it is either a hemangioma, cystic disease or extremely necrotic metastastic disease?? The specialist stated that although a diagnosis could not be confirmed he still believed it to be an benign hemangioma given my age. That was approx 8 months ago, for the past two months I have had pain under my right rib cage, I visited the dr and had an ultrasound, it showed the lesion to be just over 2cms and confirmed there was a second lesion behavouring the same as the first one on the same slice in my liver. The scan also showed a polyp in my gallbladder however only a small one. Does anyone have any suggestions?? I am concerned as my mother is currently fighting terminal cancer that started in her breasts however is in her liver and it scares me as mum was diagnosed with cancer when she was 42 years old. Any suggestions or stories of similar nature are welcomed. Thanks
