Two sessions in the right lobe of the liver . The larger one is a hemangioma. The smaller lesion is also probably a hemangioma , but does not demonstrate significant enhancement tp confirm this, possibly sclerosed. Recommend 6 month follow-up MRI to ensure stability

    I had MRI's every 3 months then six months and now yearly.   They report no change.  But I do have lesons that haven't changed, so I stopped worrying.  Of course, I am much older than u, but I have hadPBC for 20 years.  As long as there is no change in blood tests my doctor says ok.  I do get tired and other symptons, but doing well for a 74 year old.  Prayers

    A liver hemangioma is a non-cancerous (benign) mass in the liver. A liver hemangioma is made up of a tangle of blood vessels. Sclerosing hemangioma of the liver is an unusual tumor type, probably the same as the first, but they probably couldn't get a real good look at it to be 100% sure. That's what it sounds like to me anyway. If they are going to wait 6 months to do a follow-up, then they're probably not too worried about it, in my opinion.
