elevated ALT, AST, ultrasound shows a lesion - Worried!
I'm a 37 year old male, non smoker, drinks only a glass of wine maybe once a month, former pot smoker, who other then being completely stressed right now otherwise feels fine.
I had bloodwork done for life insurance and discovered elevated enzymes (ALT 159, AST, 58). Everything else was normal. I went to the doctor and he didn't seem concerned, said it was probably either fatty liver or a virus. BTW I am 6'0 and weigh 195lbs which makes me slightly overweight by about ten pounds. I asked the doctor for an ultrasound for peace of mind and he agreed. Ultrasound turned up a lesion (I don't know the size yet) and as a result the Doctor wants to meet with me, and also schedule a CT.
I am completely freaked out, can't sleep, can't eat. Is it normal to order a CT? Does that mean it's less likely to be benign? Do the elevated enzymes mean anything in relation to this? Anybody out there encounter anything similar?
