Liver Cancer

I had an MIR scan late last week and it showed a funny looking lesion on the liver.  Previously I had an ultrasound lesion (one only) was 12mm and the specialist couldn't confirm what the lesion was so they did the MRI scan and the lesion is now 17mm (grown 5mm in a month). What does Liver cancer look like on an MRI scan. Does Liver cancer look like a funny oblong shape with rough edges and long thin spike coming off it

Liver Cancer in 28 year old female

Primary liver cancer usually occurs in the setting of previously existing liver disease, and it is fairly uncommon to find in young women.  There are different types of liver cancers, but the most common type, HCC, or hepatoma, is usually fatal in a short amount of time if left untreated (you did not state if your gf has stated the specific type of liver cancer).   You stated that you are "wondering and hoping... and suspect" that she made this up, and I can understand that in a way, because liver cancer is a terrible diagnosis.  However, if your gf IS making up serious medical conditions to get attention, she should be seeking professional therapy and help.  As someone whose husband IS fighting liver cancer, I can tell you it is not something your girlfriend wants to pretend to have, and if she cares for you and those around her, she should stop lying about such serious and life-threatening matters.  Good luck.

liver spot

Hi there. Breast cancer can indeed spread to the liver and the spine.  This can also spread to a person's lungs.  Whether the liver or spine are the firsts organs to be affected is not standard and not the rule for many patients. The spot in your liver can be both benign or malignant lesions (cancer spread).  These can just be simple liver cysts or adenomas.  Rather than an MRI, I would suggest you discuss with your doctors about a PET scan, as this would differentiate between a benign a malignant lesion.   Regards and God bless.

Double Primary? Colon and Neuroendocrine Cancer?!!

Hi there! With stage IV cancer prognosis is usually poor. While parts of the tumour can be removed, it would not be beneficial as with other masses remaining the cancer would still spread to other areas. The spread of cancer cell is expected to be much higher than the regenerating capacity of the body. Even in the event of a dual type of cancer, the prognosis is not expected to change much. I would suggest discussing the situation, the management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with his treating oncologist. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
