She will probably need a biopsy to see what is going on. I am a 5 year survivor of oesphageal cancer but at my 18 months post surgery CT I had things on my liver. It turned out that I have sarcoidosis (I had a negative PET afterwards but it was the biopsy that confirmed it).
I really hope that you get the same diagnosis for your mummy.

Thank you for this insight. The ultrasound showed nothing today as well in comparison to the CT scan. Wouldn't that be a great thing if it is something along these lines vs the initial diagnosis.

Just a quick update to say that no cancer was found! The CT showed fatty tissue in her liver that resulted from the chemo. So, we are very thankful and a bit miffed at the doctor who presented her the terrifying news in this manner rather than in a more cautionary way. Lessons learned, and we'll hope we don't go down this path again! Thank you!
