Detection of lesions (spots) in the liver - is a fairly common finding. Not all lesions in the liver need treatment. With improving imaging and more frequent scanning the incidence of picking up such lesions in the liver has increased. More often than not these lesions are benign (innocent) and do not need any further treatment. eg : liver cysts, hemangiomas
Some other liver lesions may need close follow up but no treatment. Hence not all liver lesions are cancer. However a good radiological - CT scan and/ or MRI and clinical evaluation is mandatory when such lesions are picked up.
