Focal Lesion

Hi I'm hoping some of you may be able to shed a little light on a worry I have.
I have been in hospital twice in the last 5 weeks firstly with gallstone pancretitis and then mild acute pancretitis, My consultant is wanting to remove the gallbaldder once the pancretitis has settled enough. However My worry is that on my discharge letter as well as the diagnosis of the above it also states 'ultra sound- fatty liver, focal lesion in liver (prob hepatoma)' Having lost my Dad to kidney cancer a few years ago am I right in thinking that hepatoma is liver cancer?
My appointment to see my consultant at the hospital is not for another 2weeks so I am thinking that I will try to see my own DR to see if she can shed any light on this, as when I saw my consultant whilst in hospital nothing about this was mentioned.
I'd be gratefull to hear what you think,
Many Thanks Jo
