Abdominal pain, high blood pressure, tiredness, freezing fingers, nausea, low appetite. Scan shows shadow over liver. What does this mean?

Hi. I have had persistent pains in my right abdomen area for about 2 months now. It is gradually getting worse. I have high blood pressure which is still too high, despite being on medication . I am constantly tired, my fingers are always freezing cold and I have nausea and not much appetite . A recent scan showed a large shadow over my liver . Can you please tell me what you think and what does the shadow mean? I am so tired of being in pain and just want this sorted. Thank you

You might have given correct and complete diagnosis after your scan.It cannot report as Large shadow over the liver.
It can be liver abscess where there is sever pain.
But,get liver function tests and also find the complete name of the liver problem.
If the liver shadow cannot be diagnosed by ultrasound,go for CT scan abdomen.
If you come back with CT scan report,i will clarify further.
Till then,take Antibiotic like Cefuroxime,Metronidazole and Anti inflammatory drug.
You have to change the drug for high Blood pressure as it is not controlled.
Wish you good health.
