    Question Yet another post...abnormal CT result :/

    So I'm starting to get on my own nerves with having all these posts LOL.....On a more serious note, I got an email from my rheumy today about the results to my ct scan that was originally done to view my abdominal area.

    All was normal except for 2 "densities" in my liver.

    My Rheumy said she believes these are probably Hepatic Hemangiomas and they are not uncommon in young adult females. She also doesn't believe this is related to lupus.

    However, the Radiologist recommended an MRI to get a 2nd look.

    Has anyone ever had this before? I have to be honest I never expected this at all.

    My last labs were all normal besides my complement which is still low.

    The CT was done before I had started the MTX as well.

    Comments, Suggestions??

    Thanks, Brittanee

    I have 2 hepatic hemangiomas as well. They were found when I had an ultrasound for gallstones and they were confirmed with a CT. I was having surgery for the gallbladder anyway and asked if they should biopsy or aspirate the hemangiomas while in there. The surgeon said no, because they can bleed excessively if poked, but they don't usually cause problems and are very common. This was almost 3 years ago, and I haven't had any problems with them.

    Good luck, hopefully they aren't an issue for you.
