Re: Liver cyst/ nodule??

Hi-I just posted a similar question on here and I'm still hoping for a reply, but nothing yet.Is your nodule a cyst, or do they not know exactly? Are you getting an MRI with contrast? They do not know what my lesion is yet, but it does not look like a classic cyst on the us. My bloodwork is all good though, so I'm hoping that's a good sign. How is your liver function numbers? anything elevated? Please let me know how you make out!!

Re: Liver cyst/ nodule??


well liver nodules! i have just had a liver resection due to a 7cm Focal Nodular Hyperplasia(FNH) tumor on my right lobe. my liver function tests were all normal. firstly i had an ultrsound which identified its a mass rather than cyst as no fluid in it, i then had 2 CT scans with contrast and a MRI with contrast which showed up what it was. i also have 4 smaller nodules on my left lobe which we are going to leave alone for now.
the liver cell adenoma thread is great, there are a few of us on there all with liver tumors who know exactly how you feel .
generally benign liver tumors are FNH, adenomas, and hemangionomas. its a very confusing time and quite hard to make a diagnosis. have a read on previous posts on the above thread or post on there any questions as im sure you wil get a lot of answers.

hope this helps!
