Liver Lesion question..please help

Hello, I just went for my second ultrasound ( MRI also done previously) and they told me they believe the lesion on my liver is a lipoma. From what I have read this is very rare. Will a biopsy be needed to confirm this? What other liver lesion can look like lipoma? from what I know lipoma's are fat cells.

Thank you for any input.

On a side note, they also stated my spleen was mildly inlarged.

warm regards,

mom3boyzz

if the lipoma is blocking blood flow that would enlarge the spleen. I read the spleen can also enlarge with the flu or virus. let us know the results
