Hi I have a previous thread re scans of liver lesions but thought i’d start a new in hope someone else has experience to share...
I was experiencing increasing indigestion for months then a period of intense upper abdomen & back pain. Ultrasound saw a mass in my liver with subsequent MRI. Results eventually came back and say ‘at least 3 types of lesion’ on my liver. Cysts 4cm, Haemangioma 2.8cm and something which is uncharacteristic and ‘most likely’ an adenoma at 4.8cm.
My GP explained the cysts and haemangioma are harmless but he’s no expertise in adenoma’s and to discuss with the specialist gastro. From what I understand the adenoma’s are common in woman and birth control pill could be a factor. I haven’t taken it for over 4 years. I still have upper ab pain although not as intense. Backache is also frequent and pains in right arm/shoulder/armpit.
It feels like it has already been a long road waiting for scans and tests (NHS UK) and now I have more questions than answers, such as is ‘most likely’ sufficient to be sure it’s not more sinister. I did have an endoscopy also last wk also, no problems seen I and wait biopsy results (treated as separate and arranged prior to the MRI results).
Would very much appreciate feedback if anyone has experienced similar.
