Hi everyone.. i am new here and need some help with my mothers situation.
 
My mom has Hepatitis B since birth, she is now 50 years old and just had a recent checkup. My mom went for an Abdominal ultrasound and got some confusing results. I don't really understand it so i am wondering if you guys can help me.
 
Coarsened echotexture of the liver. Small polyp in the gallbladder measuring 3 mm. Cyst in the right kidney measuring 9 mm with a thin septation. Echogenic area in the body of the pancreas measuring a maximum of 7mm.
 
Do i need to be concerned of these results. Are they related to cirhossis?
 
thanks guys!!

benjamin123,

Coarsened echotexture of the liver = Chronic Hepatitis

 

Small polyp in the gallbladder measuring 3 mm = Common occurance and 95% are not cancerous. They normally consist of cholesterol, muscle tissue or inflammatory tissue.

 

Cyst in the right kidney measuring 9 mm with a thin septation.= Kidney cysts are not unusual and occur quite frequently when we age. Most cysts are fluid filled sacs and if not causing any problems they are not treated at all. The thin septation means separated.

 

Echogenic area in the body of the pancreas measuring a maximum of 7mm.= a shadow seen on the pancreas during ultra sound. Happens frequently.

 

I'm not a Dr and this is just my opinion OK?

 

Hope this helps-Shelly

My mom has had hepatitis B since she was young. I am wondering if Chronic hepatitis B will eventually lead to Cirrhosis regardless of good diet and lifestyle?
