Spots on the liver can be various things but one of the most likely is a benign hemangioma which requires no action. One of the new terms is ’fat infiltration’ and without knowing your weight it is unfair to comment but in a society that is heading more and more to obesity, pretty much everyone has some fat in their liver.

The best thing to do is get any scans you can, a CAT scan may not be foolproof in confirming heangiomas but it is a good start. The liver can contain cysts which can be empty or contain fluid, either watery or  mucus-like. Most of these are found by chance as you describe because they do not produce any symptoms. They are usually formed either due to old age or poor diet and lifestyle, although you should rule out Hydatid disease which can be caused by ingesting dog tape worm.

The best thing to do at the end of the day is to go back to your doctor, undergo any tests he suggests such as a biopsy or any further scans and he will be able to inform you exactly what the issue is. In the meantime, the best thing to keep your liver healthy is to eat well, with lots of vitamins and minerals, attempt to cut down on drinking and smoking and exercise as much as possible. You might consider running a liver cleanse if you feel comfortable with it but clarify with your doctor what the issue is before proceeding.

Chest pain, right side, not hungry.  Had gallbladder checked out, ok, had heart checked out, ok, got a x-ray and that showed a large black spot on my liver.  Waiting for MRI.  I am 45 years old and always been in fairly good health.  Do I need to be concerned that this is cancer.  My father passed away a couple years ago with brain cancer.

My niece had this and it was not a problem at all - some kind of pigmentation, apparently. You can question your G.P. About it when you discuss your ultrasound results.

my fiances ultrasound of her liver shows eight spots on it. i dont know what this is but im very worried. shes been on prednisone (steroids) for 6 years. she keeps getting infection after infection and it wont go away and since she is on this steroid it masks the infection so it appears its gone but isn't. she cant live without these steroids and she cant live like this. she also has one failed kidney, her gallbladder,bladder,lungs and ovaries are already messed up.all this thanks to prednisone. what should we do?

If you ever have slight pain in that area...you could have liver flukes...tearing holes into your liver and they will cause cysts to form. They can do a lot of damage and many more people in the US have them than Dr.'s like to admit. Check out the centers for disease control site that says 85 to 95% of American's have parasites. I got them.and the medication doesn't get rid of them; it makes the host plenty sick! Anyhow, I didn't get them from a foreign country. Besides, with the way travel is...we can be anywhere in a day, we don't have to travel to foreign countries to pick up parasites. Foreigners are coming to us and bringing all sorts of lovely diseases and parasites with them. You can get them from food or even touching someone who has them. I know, since I have witnessed the larve coming out of my skin!! So Gross!! Anyhow, good luck with your situation. Prayer works wonders too.  :)
