Low Density area on liver...HELP what does that mean?
I'm 38 and have had some elevated liver enzymes for awhile. About 4-years-ago I was told I had fatty liver. So, in January I had some routine bloodwork and it showed that my liver enzymes were again elevated. My doctor suggested seeing an gastroenterologist who was confident it was fatty liver but sent me for an abdominal ultrasound for precaution. I got a call from the nurse (that bugs me that the doctor didn't call) saying that it showed that I indeed have fatty liver but there was a low density area near the pancreas that they would like to follow up with an MRI (with and without contrast). Should I be in panic mode? Could this be liver cancer? Why did they suggest an MRI over a CT scan, does it look bad enough to warrant the expensive MRI? Could it be fatty infiltration? I really appreciate any and all feedback, as I can hardly wait until Monday to get this done.
