Hi,Vincent,thanks for query.out of normal range by just 2 points is acceptable.The reason for advising scan may be he wanted to know about something which causing this elevation of enzymes.Marginal rise may occur due to various reasons,some drugs,alcohol.high fatty foods prior to test etc.So do not worry and go for the scan.bye and take care.

My Dr wants me to have a scan of my liver lobe? I have elevated enzymes. I have gained about 12lbs since my last visit and I am about 35 BMI. Could the elevated enzymes be the result of my exceptionally fat ass or should I be worried about cancer? I just turned 46.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... Dear doctor, I need your help very urgently.My mother has got a cancer & i want to get it cured as soon as possible. We did check up @ tata memorial hospital mumbai, they have written in their report that she has heptacellular lives cancer. They removed one tumor kind of thing from her liver & they told us to take her to any doctor & she will be ok.then she was feeling good for two months but suddenly she has started to become thinner. Her liver got swelled thats why her stomach has increased. So now as per tata s instruction we are treating her in one local cancer specialist. Now he says that there s no chance of her survival.Please advise what to do now. Can her liver be transplanted?How much it can cost. Please advise other treatment if there s any. Please give me contact details of some hospitals.

They found a 1cm by 2cm spot on my pancreas during a routine CAT scan that I have done every 6 months, to see if my liver cirrhosis turned cancer...liver was clear, but this spot has me very concerned. My G.I. ordered an Ultra sound with fasting for the 9th of June. In your opinion what are the odds it is cancer and if not what else could it be.
