US shows spot on liver-worried
Hi, I'm new to this board. I hope someone can give me some hopeful advice.
I'm 43 years old, female, with some health problems for which I take various meds. I have polycystic ovarian sydnrome, for which I take birth control pills. I also have allergies and asthma, for which I take antihistamines and Advair and Singulair. I have hyprothyroidism-Synthroid, and I am bipolar type 2, for which I take Zyprexa and Paxil. I also am pre-diabetic, for which I take Metformin. Other than all this, I'm in good health, although I've noticed I have been fatigued for the past few months (I ascribed it to my bipolar meds).
I had a bout of nausea and vomiting a few weeks ago that came out of nowhere and was followed by pain in my right lower rib cage, close to my sternum. My GI doc sent me in for an ultrasound, which showed a spot on my liver. My family doc. wants me to go in for an MRI, but I'm due to see the GI doc on Tuesday re. an upper endoscopy I had this morning (which was fine) and the spot on my liver.
I am very concerned that the spot is a cancerous mass. I know it could just be an adenoma, but I can't stop worrying. Can anyone offer any reassurance? And is an MRI the logical next step, or should I have a biopsy instead (trying to save money here)?
Thank you to you all.
