I have been diagnosed with a tumor on the liver yet the reports (blood, biopsy, CT) don't offer enough conclusive information. I'd like an opinion on the reports - the link to access them is WWW.WWWW.WW

We have considered hydatid disease, given my extensive travels in Eastern Tibet and other hydatid areas.

Thanks for writing in

I have asked my secretary to download the reports, once I have them I will get back to you

In the mean time tell me what exactly are your symptoms which led you to get yourself investigated or is this a normal routine checkup when the diagnosis was made

Usually hydatid is clearly evident on CT and Ultrasound

Yet give me some time to get the reports and I will get back to you

Have a healthy life ahead
