    CT Scan Results

    I recently had an abdomen CT scan with contrast performed after a lesion was found during a abdomen ultrasound.

    The following was noted during the CT scan:

    There is a 10 mm subcapsular hyperenhancing lesion within the right
    hepatic lobe which is nonspecific in etiology however may represent
    a small flash filling hemangioma or potentially a subcapsular shunt.
    Consider follow-up pre and post contrast-enhanced MRI in 6 months.


    My doctor seems to think it's nothing to worry about but it sounds to me like they don't know what the lesion is yet. Does anyone have any experience with something like this?


    Thanks

    I would definitely ask my Dr. to investigate further. If they don't know what it is...find out~~ I would want them to myself. Just my opinion.

    I have the exact same thing... Ive had the MRI repeated every 6 months for 2 years and everytime they tell me its nothing to worry about. My doctor seems to think its a cyst.

    I had my gallbladder out a year ago and had them do a full look around at everything- there was nothing seen by the naked eye.

    Sometimes you just have to wait and see unfortunately. More than likely it is a hemangioma which is nothing more than a mark or birthmark...

    You are not alone!
