Dr.Tiwari :

Hello,

Dr.Tiwari :

Welcome at JA.

Customer:

Is 8mm of focal fat on liver a concern?

Dr.Tiwari :

The nodule which are less then the 2cm in diameter are generally not malignant.

Customer:

Could that cause pain

Dr.Tiwari :

No.

Customer:

would an area of that size be considered liver disease

Dr.Tiwari :

The area less then the 2 cm comes in benign lesions & they should be watched with CT/MRI at frequent intervel(about 6 months).

Dr.Tiwari :

They generally do not need active treatment.
