Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
Fatty liver is the most common incidental finding during ultrasound scan of abdomen.

It is a very benign condition. It is unrelated with your previous history of carcinoma ovary.

For this, you have to do a liver function test. If all are within normal limit, then you need nothing. But, in case of abnormality in the liver function test, you should consult with a gastroenterologist.

You should avoid alcohol and fatty foods.

Dear Daffodilsdfa,
Presently you are completely in remission from ovarian cancer.
Mild hepatomegaly with with mild fatty inflitration is a common finding on ultrasonographic examination of the abdomen and is not of much concern. you should get your liver function tests done and consult your physician who can give you appropriate medicine for fat reduction of the liver.
chemotherapy doesnt cause diabetes. you must have been earlier latent diabetic . I hope dietic management weill get you rid of this problem for which a dietician should be consulted.
