I had an MRCP & several tiny spots were found on my liver. My Dr. thinks they are "shunts," which is like a cluster of blood, that is fairly common in people over 40. He said he hesitates to go into detail because its very complicated, so he tried to explain in laymen's terms. So, he wants to repeat the test again in 6 months, because if you have a liver disease, they can sometimes develop into tumors. He told me not to worry because he feels confident they are only shunts & if they go away on their own in 6 months, he will know they are shunts & will not repeat the test again. Has anyone ever heard of these "shunts?" Has anyone had spots on their liver?
