If I am reading this correctly you have been on chemo between the two scans ?
The positive is that has stayed the same , exactly the same and absolutely nothing else has shown up . So I think that is incredibly positive . I take it they are thinking of removing it ?
Keep the positives at the forefront . It’s solitaire and there are options .
Much love ,

As you likely are aware, a very low percentage of TSTC liver lesions are mets, and even lesions classed as “suspicious” TSTC lesions are only mets around a quarter of the time (according to one large study I’ve seen). I think that the extended stability of this finding, including through chemo, further suggests that it is not malignant. And radiologists often are very conservative in the language they use — this one just said a met can’t be ruled out, for example. It also appears a hemangioma can’t be fully ruled out. And, of course, there are other liver lesions that it might be.
However, I am not familiar with all of the terminology your radiologist used, so I can’t really say anything useful about how that evaluation changes the above picture. Your doctors will need to give you that perspective. Good luck!
