Liver Lesion

I am a 43 year old female (Who has never been on a message board, so really don't know what to expect) experiencing nauseau, weight loss, fatigue and itching. They did blood tests and ruled out hepatitis, but indicated my liver function testing was abnormally high and ordered a ultrasound of my liver. I had the ultrasound last week and a 2 x 3.5 cm lesion was found, but they are unable to tell me what the "lesion" is. I am now scheduled for a CT with liquid contrast. My symptoms have subsided, but I am a nervous wreck worrying. My doctor is a General Practitioner (GP), but calls me on evenings and weekends with results, which helps. Should I be seeing a Liver specialist, or is my GP on the right track? Has anyone else experienced the same symptoms, specifically the itching?

Re: Liver Lesion

Please take this advice...worrying is the worst thing you can do right now. aware when you worry and and immediately change that thought into a picture in your mind of a healthy liver inside of you. Breathe in the peace of having that healthy liver then change your thought to a happy memory or something fun you're going to do that day. Your body has the power to heal itself as long as you don't focus on what you think is wrong. Energy flows where attention goes. It works for me.

Re: Liver Lesion

The itching will be to do with bile salts that are in your blood stream, this may have absolutely nothing to do with the lesion that has already been identified in your liver and may be due to gall bladder issues instead.
My advice is to get a referral to a liver specialist- sounds like your GP knows a bit about what is needed ie the tests etc but a liver specialist is probably what you need. The FNH, adenoma and haemangioma discussion thread is a good place to read up on what these lesions are and how other people have been treated. It all depends on what the CT scan shows and a good radiologist will be able to decide what type of lesion it is. Try not to worry too much about it- you will see that many people have been in the same situation as you and learn to live with it, for example I have a 5cm lesion which was diagnosed in 2008 and I just have a scan once a year to keep an eye on it- it really will depend on what type of lesion it is. Keep calm and let us know how you get on
