Liver lesions
Mar 5, 2012

I recently had ultrasound and CT scan confirming multiple lesions on the right and left lopes. Largest is9.4cm. I face been co infected with HIV HBV for about 25 years. Any hope these lesions are benign!

Response from Dr. McGovern

It is hard to say what these lesions could represent - I am sure the utmost question on your mind is tumor, but there are also potential infectious causes for these lesions. Thus the critical thing will be to work with your doctor on getting tissue (a biopsy) to assess the best treatment for you.

You will be in my thoughts.
