Brief Answer:
Probable liver cancer with background cirrhosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.

I went through her reports.
It looks like she is probably having liver cancer with background cirrhosis.
Cirrhosis is a condition in which the liver is scarred and shrunken. It can lead to liver cancer.

A biopsy may be done to confirm the lesion in the liver is indeed cancer.
Further treatment may be planned after that.

Regards,
Dr.R.K.

Brief Answer:
Liver biopsy

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
AFP is a marker for liver cancer. It need not be raised in all cases.
Since the CT images point towards liver cancer and the AFP is within normal limits, I suggested liver biopsy for confirmation.
You can consult with her doctor for a liver biopsy.

Regards,
Dr.R.K.
