I also got an update on my mom this weekend when I was down on Long Island. I've been concerned about the lesion they saw in her liver on MRI, but haven't been able to get a strait answer from either my mom or my step-dad about what they were doing to follow the lesion. Well, my mom handed me the MRI report from February, and asked me if I wanted to read it. Duh! Of course I do! The report said that the Eovist (special liver MRI contrast) MRI technique confirmed that the lesion in the liver is Benign Focal Nodular Hyperplasia. Pretty much, part of my moms liver has become nodular in nature, but it has benign characteristics, as opposed the suspicious characteristics. I breathed a sigh of relief after reading that report. I am so happy. However, my mom still has to go back to Sloan for a follow-up appointment with her Endocrinologist regarding her thyroid blood work. Apparently some of her numbers are off, so they are going to discuss that. We'll see what happens at that appointment, but I'm happy the liver lesion isn't metastatic.
