I am aware my questions about this need to be directed to my medical team but thought I would also throw it out here as well.
I am not sure if anyone else has had the experience where during a staging CT scan they found a lesion on the liver. I was diagnosed early in March 2016 and because they found cancer in 1 lymph node was sent for full body bone scans and an CT ( chest/ abdomen/pelvis). Luckily the bone scan was fine ( except for mild arthritis which I knew about). The CT scan picked up 2 lesions in my liver 7mm and 10 mm. Anyway it caused a bit dilemma at the hospital and for a short time a liver biopsy was considered then taken off the table. The Radiographer is thinking it might be a hemangioma rather than metastases and sticking needles into a hemangioma is very risky apparently. A subsequent liver MRI was not able to confirm a definite diagnosis but they are now thinking the lesions look like atypical hemangioma which is benign. I have done some reading and it seems lots of us are walking around with all sort of lesions in our organs but we would normally never know about about them and they wouldn't cause us any problems but just because cancer patients are scanned so much occasionally something suspicious is found.
I am concerned it is metastases but without a liver biopsy I won't know. I am due to have Chemo after the 2nd surgery so that might treat it anyway. Docs are also thinking of sending me to have a PET CT scan or a Red Cell nuclear scan just to be sure. Sometimes it is the unknown's that is the hardest to deal with.
