Hello everybody. I am a bit confused and would appreciate any advice.I have had right upper quadrant pain for several months.A GP referred me for ultrasound.Sonographer said verbally: "No gallstones". I phoned a week later for blood results, another GP phoned back, said bloods were fine and "liver cyst" (news to me) was not a cause of RUQ pain. Given an apt for a week later after I insisted pain still there. Saw another GP who said nothing about the scan, examined me briefly and said he would refer me to "a clinic". Afterwards I asked receptionist for blood results (needed them for Dermatology where they removed some basal cell carcinomas on Sat for biopsies).She also gave me copy of ultrasound. Was surprised to see "Fatty liver with 22mm lesion in the left lobe liver. Requires further investigation". I am not feeling great. Tired. Sleeping most of the time. Still have RUQ pain. Ankles puffy with a strange black bruise. Now stitches from skin cancer badly infected (Given antibiotic script over phone and due out on Wed). Have newly diagnosed Diabetes 2, three months ago. Have previously had no health problems. Non smoker, non drinker. Am British but lived in South Africa till 3 yrs ago. Very confused by NHS system. Seen a different GP each time. Incredibly brief consultation. Only one examination (prodded stomach). Don't feel GPs are concerned, so should I just leave it? Is this a normal GP practice (seems a little uncoordinated, very little communication, very different to S.A.) ? I am not severely ill and know there is a winter crisis, with very sick patients. Should I wait or ask for further investigation? Thank you.
