necretozing granulatmatoas inflamatory absess
Jul 3, 2002

They removed a growth with the pathology as described 8 months ago. I have multiple growths on my liver and base of my rib cage. My PCP will not refer me to a specialist. Who should I see? Can you tell me what I have? Thank you very much! PAS

Response from Dr. Young

Unfortunately, your description is not complete enough for me to know what you might have. Nevertheless, the presence of multiple liver and rib lesions would seem very significant to me.

While I am not a liver specialist, I am a board-certified internist and infectious disease specialist-- I'd probably refer you to someone who might be able to further delineate what's going on. -BY
