Low Density Area in Liver -- What does this mean??
I've been suffering awful digestive problems for over 2 years now... my complete story is listed in another thread on the Digestive section of this board. My main symptoms are nausea, pain in the upper right quadrant of my abdomen, and dizziness (though there are a whole host of others). Recently I underwent a live blood analysis, and they found lots and lots of undigested fats in my blood, pointing to something being wrong with the gallbladder. Then I had an ultrasound to check for gallstones, but they didn't find any. They did, however, find a 3cm low density area (or "spot") in my liver. (That's like over an inch big!) They want me to have an MRI. I have a follow-up appointment soon to discuss this further, but for now I'd really like to know what this means! Are "low density areas" common? Could it be a tumor or lesion? Could it be cancer? Could it cause my symptoms? What are treatments? Help!
