Re: Dr's found a spot on my moms liver, does this mean cancer?
I understand your panic as I too had a spot found on my liver by sonogram. First thought was cancer and I am only 34. I could only think of leaving my kids. After many tests they found out it was an adenoma not cancer caused by birth control pills. There are a lot of medications that effect the liver. I was told it could be fatty liver, hemangioma, fnh, or an adenoma. Since an adenoma can rupture or turn to cancer I had liver resection on June 26, 2008. I was told that liver cancer is very rare and more times you have cancer somewhere else and it spreads to the liver. I would take your mom to someone who specializes on liver surgery. That was finally when I got a straight answer and when my tumor went to the lab it was an adenoma. Please ask any questions as I am here to help others since they helped me. Hang in there and take it one day at a time. My thoughts are with you and your family.
