I'm new to this site and quite surprised there is not a section on liver disease#
 
I currently had an ultrasound, followed by a CT scan w/contrast, to rule out a hernia#  Nothing was found in regards to a hernia, but the study did find a 2cm lesion on the right lobe of my liver, as well as a 5 mm cyst on the left lobe of the liver and a 8mm nonenhancing lesion along the posterior left cortex of my kidney#
 
Of notable interest, the 2cm lesion was found on the ultrasound, but not the CT#  Additionally, the ultrasound report stated my kidneys had no lesions, while the CT report stated the 8mm lesion #compatible with a cyst# was found#
 
The radiologist recommended a MRI liver protocol imaging to evaluate for additional liver lesions, which I will have in a couple of days#
 
Has anyone else experienced this?  My primary care provider seemed somewhat nonchalant in the reading of the studies, so I'm wondering if I'm making this out to be more than what it really is#  Is the radiologist being proactive and overly cautious, or is this serious?
 
Any comments would be appreciated#

Welcome to Healing Well.

While I don't have any answers specifically, I did have a strange finding show up on a lung while having a CT for my stomach. I eventually had the mass removed and it was benign.

Take care,
Bill
