Hello,

Thanks for your question.

Benign liver cysts commonly cause hypodense lesions in the absence of any symptoms.

Malignancy can also cause hypodense lesions, but usually they are multiple & associated with symptoms.

My CK level was high,my doctor says there is'nt anything to worry about; besides my cholesterol level being elevated everything else was normal after doing CBC.My main question is should I be concern?
Expert:  Ken replied 6 years ago.
Hello,

I can understand your anxiety.

Elevation of CK is an indication of damage to muscle. It is therefore indicative of injury, rhabdomyolysis, myocardial infarction, muscular dystrophy, myositis, myocarditis, malignant hyperthermia, and neuroleptic malignant syndrome. It is also seen in McLeod syndrome and hypothyroidism.

Hypodense lesion in liver can be simple cyst/ complicated cyst { having septae or internal solid component or thick walls }/ benign lesions like adenoma/ malignant lesions. It also depends on the margins of the lesion/ mass effect over the surrounding liver tissue/ enhancement after the contrast injection and rate of growth what matters and gives us clue to diagnose it. A follow up scan will help knowing any change in size/shape or imaging findings.

A physical check up and correlation with other investigations will be helpful.

Please do not worry. Get a physical checkup to diagnose it. May be biopsy will be needed. Treatment will than follow.

Wish you well. God bless
