My relative in Fiji has been diagnosed with a liver problem.

Customer Question
My relative in Fiji...

My relative in Fiji has been diagnosed with a liver problem. The radiologist report says there is a ecogenic lesion measuring 5cm diameter. The right and left intrahepatic ducts are moderately dilated. No mass detected. Do you know what this could be?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

He is still having tests and has been put on a special diet but no medication has been prescribed as they thought this may cause the liver to work harder.As medical care is not great in this part of Fiji I am concerned that more needs to be done. The whites of his eyes are clearing and not quite so yellow. Should he be doing more?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

No daily medication is being taken and no known allergies to any drugs.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

He doesn’t drink or smoke although he was quite a heavy drinker 20 years ago. He is 55 years of age.
