Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Did you get the report of your PET scan?
No not yet - but the ct said new peripheral area on liver ?
Was that a new CT scan done after the one that you had done previously?
Or is it the same lesion that you are mentioning?
Please let me know.
Same one but I got the exact wording today :
It does sound like a metastasis.
There is very little doubt actually that this is a metastasis.
New low attenuation peripheral area on liver , 15 mm
The mention of the word 'new' which means that it was not present previously does most likely indicate a metastatic lesion.
What does peripheral mean ?
Peripheral means situated at the edge or away from the center.
would u say surgery is best for cure?
Best chance is having surgery.
Not likely to be a hemanginoma right or cyst ?
No because it was not present previously. It mentions 'new' lesion.
hemangiomas are usually present for a long period of time.
The best test to confirm that would be PET scan.
Surgery removes the lesion but so do ablation procedures so why surgery better ? And even with surgery there is risk of recurrence as with ablation
As far as my understanding is concerned this is most likely a metastasis.
Ablation procedure is another option.
It all depends on whether this lesion will be feasible to ablation. A professional experienced on ablations can guide you on this better.
But y surgery best ?
Because it has the best chance of removing the entire lesion.
what I wanted to say was that you need to have this lesion removed either via ablation or surgery.
But the better option will depend on the feasibility of surgery vs ablation.
Are you with me?
Yea I see now . So once removed the key is to
futher mets and the oNly way that can happen is if the microscopic cells r killed right
What if chemo does not kill the microscopic cells ? Can any scans not see then until they grow ?
Cam a person be cured with a met to the liver , ie can they b disease free?
Can things like Tumeric and ip6 And asprin help in killing the microscopic cells ?
