Liver cysts


Recommended Posts

I don't know if this is related, but thought I'd document here.


I had an abdominal ultrasound and CT scan done at the ER (pelvic /abdominal pain). It showed a large cyst in the dome of my liver as well as several other smaller cysts. I am to follow up with a gastroenterologist.


One doctor did diagnose me with non alcohol fatty liver disease in early withdrawal, so I suspect this is part of it.


Mold spores (aspergillus) were also found in my home recently. Referred to Infectious Disease doc. Apparently, MTHFR polymorphism and mold complicate one another.


Anyone else with liver cysts or problems?
