9mm spot on liver

14 Apr 2018 22:24

Haven't been here in a long while after being ***clear*** from bowel cancer for 2yrs.  All CT scans and bloods have been good.. until last month a 9mm spot has been seen on my liver.  I've had the MRI and get results on Tuesday.  Can't help but worry obviously.  Anybody been in a similar position?  I've reading the size spot could possibly be a hormonal change.... I did have a full hysterectomy at time of bowel surgery?? Sigh.... hope this is not the return of the dreaded C

Oh, no symptoms at all.

Hi JB45,

I am so sorry to hear about your latest health worries. I have had 2 bouts of breast cancer. The first was 8 years ago and the second was 7. I had a fibroscan a few years ago and discovered that 11% of my liver was fibrosed. They seem to think that this is the result of medication. I now have annual abdominal ultrasounds to ensure that this area is not getting bigger and, so far it has been ok. I'm due to have another scan at the end of this month.

When did you have you bowel surgery and hysterectomy?

I sincerely hope that the spot you refer to is not a return of the big C and that you can continue to monitor it as I am doing.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Good morning 

My cancer was 3yrs ago in June this year.  Had the bowel sorted where the cancer was and as precaution they did full hysterectomy.  Great to hear things are going well and absolutely they need to keep checking you.  

Oh well just have to wait and see what they say Tuesday.  Then deal with it.  I understand 9mm is really small so guess that's good if nothing else 

Have a great day

Hi JB45,

You seem to have taken the belt and braces approach 3 years ago, so I hope that this means that you are still clear and that there is another explanation for this spot.

I shall be thinking of you on Tuesday and praying for a good result.

Kind regards,

Thanks so much. I'm trying hard not to imagine any symptoms haha in reality I feel awesome all things considered. However I'm under no illusions as to the chances of what nasty critter it could be.  I'll update once I know.  

Hope all good with you and you able to enjoy the sun whilst it's out... assuming you have fun

Hi

no idea, they looked for 5hrs on the operating table and couldn't find it, then last hour they removed the part of the liver that it was showing on the scans and treated it as if they had found it.  Then sent for testing and nothing.  It's been a real mystery.  It was major open surgery too and I saw the spot on scan with my son and surgeon when he first consulted me.  When do you have your MRI?  I even joked with the surgeon if their machines were dirty haha
 

The surgery was easy and I bounced back after 4 weeks, even went back to work albeit part time.  
 

I hope all goes well for you.
