Re: R rib and liver pain

I would recommend seeing a liver specialist and discussing a possible biopsy of the dime sized area in liver. Also, a bone scan may be worthwhile to see if there is any lesion in the rib, especially if you can pinpoint a tender area in the rib that is very localized (can find it with 1-2 fingers and put a marker on it.) Fatty liver usually presents as a diffuse or widespread, overall change in appearance of the liver texture, not a defined spot, which is more concerning. The Drs and testing facilities will sometimes do a cash discount if you pay without insurance, but I would follow up on this. If you are the age to need colonoscopy, that would be a good place to look as well.
