I got papers on my blood work and it is high on AST ALT. There is also a note to the side of the paper stating, " refer to PCP aspa." This has me very concerned, and I do not have time to stop at the PCP if this is nothing seirous. AST h74 normal 35 , ALT h136 normal 55

Hi im a 34 year old male. I am 5 8 at 312 lbs. I dont have an active job and dont exercise. I recently got a mens exam and got some alarming news. My cholesterol is 160. Low hdl and high ldl . My eating habits are horrible to say the least. Everything came back fine on my blood work except the cholesterol and my liver enzimes. My ast was 44 and my alt is 95. I was a super heavy smoker for about 2 years but quit about 3 weeks before my check up. I was told it could be fatty liver but I read it could be cancer. I lose sleep every night and worry myself sick. Im scared its liver cancer. Im scheduled for a liver ultrasound tomorrow. My question is do you think it will be liver cancer and are ultrasounds accurate or could they miss something. Thank you for your time and expertise.

HI Doctor, My husband is scheduled for an MRI as they want to check on a mass found in the liver. My husband s blood work came out normal, but an ultrasound discovered a mass. Is it possible to have normal blood work and still have liver cancer? Thank you, Vanessa.
