    This is my report. Help?

    I am so not understanding why all my test every few months came up with nothing. My CEA still normal.

    There is a tiny 2.0cm cyst of the dome of the right lobe of the liver.

    A 4.0 cm irregular shaped low density non enhancing lesion is also noted in the posterior aspect of the right lobe of the liver.

    The extrahepatic biliary radicles are dilated with common bile duct at the region of the head of the pancreas measures about 1.0 cm in greatest diameter.
    There is also suggestion of a few tiny stones in the common bile duct.

    The spleen, pancreas kidneys adrenal glands and abdominal aorta are normal.

    Lastly, there is a 2.0 X 3.7 X 4.4 cm irregular soft tissue density in the left lower pelvis posterior to the urinary bladder.

    Why didn't this show up on my last 6 month check. I literally have to make my oncologist do test on me. When the 4.0 was smaller on my liver she said lets just wait and see. This sucks.

      I wonder if your CEA was ever elevated also. Mine wasn't even though I had colon cancer - my CEA is not a reliable indication of cancer for me.

      Now that you say that Floridagirl6 I don't think my CEA was elevated to an alarming level. I did see it go up and after the surgery it was down. It went up a little during chemo but after that it leveled out very low.

      At time of diagnosis I had 3 cysts on my liver and a very small nodule in my lung, shown on a CT or MRI scan, I don't recall which. Neither showed up on the PET scan. That was nearly 3 years ago. I don't worry about the findings. I have not had any follow-up tests and do not feel the need to do so.
