Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
I can understand the worries you might have.
Please post the report of Ultrasonography and also of the MRI once done.
Please do not be worried as this can be due to infective pathology too.
Let us wait and see the result of both and other parameters of tests of blood, urine and stool.
Awaiting for the reports.
