Flank pain. CT shows enlarged liver with hemangioma cyst and blood test shows elevated ALT. How to treat this?

So about a month ago, I began having flank pain (lower right). This has happened before, but has always resolved. I did have a "fatty cyst" detected by CT back in 2010, but no concerns were expressed by my doctor. Last year I went to my doctor for the same symptoms and he told me my back needing adjusting after a urine culture came back negative. I saw him again and stated I just didn't feel right...always feeling bloated, hard time with my weight, fatigue, etc. He did some bloodwork and told me everything was "perfect". When I saw him two weeks ago, the symptoms had onset approx. two weeks prior. We did a urine C&S, which again came back negative, but I suggested possibly revisiting my liver with regard to the fatty cyst. When he called to give me the results he said there wasnt any real change with the cyst and really didn't know what else to tell me except to maybe visit a gastro. In the interim, I requested copies of my bloodwork from last year and the CT just done. My ALT was elevated last year and he never mentioned it, even though there was record of a cyst and repeated complaints of flank pain. Then I looked at the CT results and it actually stated my liver was enlarged and fatty and that the aformentioned cyst was now described as a hemangioma. I am really upset and feel he dropped the ball. Also I called his office twice last week requesting he order new labwork for me and I still have not received a return call. I am really actually scared and stressed out about this. Also I am having occasional pain in the left side in my back just below my ribcage as well.

Homeopath 's  Response
Hello Friend,
Thank you for posting your query through Healthcare magic.
I can understand your concern and your reaction to those doctors who ignored your symptoms at the right moment when they could have prevented your disease from worsening to the present stage.
First of all please understand that conventional medical specialists cannot prevent a disease from worsening because they want some material findings to interfere with.
I am a Homoeopath and so will be sharing with you some different thoughts about your disease.
You become sick because of your Miasms. This is a term we Homoeopaths use. This simply means a genetic disposition transferred through generations and you got it from your parents. This dynamic proneness for certain types of diseases are inborn. It is your life situations and dynamically decided reactions that precipitate the disease.
Now coming back to your query, you have not mentioned a single word about your MIND, because for the conventional medicine, mind is insignificant or they do not know the importance of MIND in the production of diseases. Man is both mind and body. How can we imagine health without considering one's mind and body together? Similarly how can we say that mind is not important in sickness. You gave a lot of information about investigations but what about your mind?
As a Homoeopath, I can presume that you had a psychological conflict, something that you could not "digest", just before the development of the complaints in your abdomen. You kept it in your mind without resolving in the psychological level. There are centres in the brain corresponding to every emotion and every organ. The mind- brain- organ axis makes the disease; the location and type of disease is decided by one's MIASM.
In your case, the liver is affected. The tendency to develop tumours is in your genetics. It started with small cyst, now developed to larger haemangioma. Your gastro enterologist can do nothing except cutting the tumour. Haemangioma is not a safe organ to be meddled with surgical interference.
Since they have dropped the ball, I can take it up again, because we never treat your haemangioma, cyst or abdomen. We treat YOU and YOU only.
We pay more importance to your genetic disposition to develop tumour, of course. But your life situations, your mental and physical reactions, your particular psychological conflicts that precipitated the disease, your past history, family history, mental and physical make ups etc are most important while taking your case.
A rightly chosen genetic constitutional remedy will cure your haemangioma without any surgery. Please do not imagine that cure is its total disappearance or that you will become healthy only by removing it. Understand that your body has innumerable defence mechanisms and even now you are 'almost' compromised with the tumour. The balance of uncompromising is manifested through your present pains and other discomforts.
You have to get your psychological conflicts resolved in the psychological level itself.
After taking the Homoeopathic remedy, once you stop getting pains and other discomforts, understand that you have started improving. Wait for days when your body will keep the haemangioma to a stage from where it started coming up. Let is take time. But you can ignore about it under Homoeopathic treatment. No need of any removal. Rather, I would advise you never go for any surgery.
Either you can approach a very expert Homoeopathic physician or you can approach me by asking a direct premium question through Healthcare magic. I will then send to you a case taking format in which you will develop YOUR whole history and send it back to me. Then I will suggest your Miasmatic / genetic constitutional remedy which will cure YOU.
With Best Wishes,
Dr. C. J. Varghese,
