Ultrasound booked

My diaphragm ultrasound has been booked for 31st December.

I guess my worry is this; I had a small GI-NET removed a year-and-a-half ago with my appendix, and these have a tendency to recur anywhere and metastasise frequently to the liver. Liver functions were fine, but that doesn't rule out a liver NET, and given that it was my right hemidiaphragm that was elevated on the x-ray, along with my recent symptoms (past couple of months) of abdo pain, mild diarrhoea, flushing, and raised heart rate, it is a possibility. Cancer also runs very strongly in my family.

Anyone else had this, or the ultrasound?

Just hoping the ultrasound goes well for you Matt and you get good results.

Wishing you well for 2016. Xxx


Hi, I have no experience of these tumours, but I do know that excessive worry will not be helpful. Try to keep calm, relax as much as possible and have a good talk to your health professional when you know the outcome.

I wish you all the very best

Take care
