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
Solid on radiography means without any areas of fluid.
Hyperechoic means something that appears whiter on radiography.
If it appears blacker it is called as hypoechoic.
Can you please let me know if this is a report of CT scan or ultrasound?
And of which part of the body?
And why it was done?
Please let me know.
Also mention your age and gender please.
It was a Ultrasound scan on the right lobe of the liver
I'm female and 58 years old
Why was it done?
I mean what were your symptoms, if any?
I experience pain in that area
and have you been referred or any other investigations planned?
I have an appointment in the gastroenterology dept, but for 18 weeks,is this urgent?
How big are the lesions?
Do you know the size?
28x25x26mm the largets
What has your doctor said, if anything?
That all the blood tests are normal ,my liver is smooth in outline and a normal size . The gallbladder may contain probable polypoid leisions
The most important thing to rule out in lesions such as these is cancer obviously which may require a biopsy.
Other causes include benign (harmless) causes such as hemangiomas of the liver.
Cancer in any other part of the body can cause these lesions in the liver by spreading to the liver.
So these are the main things that should be considered and ruled out.
Has cancer been mentioned in the 'impression' given in the ultrasound report?
Are you there?
The report says that"it appears more heterogeneous and may represent atypical haemangioma although other pathology cannot be ruled out"
Yes, like I mentioned hemangioma is a possibility.
If the report did mention hemangioma then that is the more likely possibiility
So I would not worry a great deal.
What is hemangioma?
Hemangioma is a harmless tumor of the blood vessels.
So what action should I take in the meantime/
Just pain medications like paracetamol.
