Hi and welcome to the site. My name is***** hope I'm able to provide some helpful medical information for you today.
There is too little information in your question to be able to give you much of an answer. The information that we'd need is all blood tests that have been done as well as ultrasound reports or other imaging. Once that information is available, I can give more information about what may be going on and best steps to solve the problem. Please reply with more information so I can help you.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
