Hi! I am a 31 year old female that would enjoy a few beers almost every night for the last 6 years(but 2 of them I was pregnant, so I wasn't drinking during those years)
I went to the doctor the beginning of December to get a physical done because I haven't had one in probably close to 10 years... when my bloodwork came back my dr called and said my liver enzymes were high, I went back and had my bloodwork redone. My liver enzymes went down to only double what they should be(instead of 5x how they were the first time around.... I am thinking from drinking beer??) so she wanted to send me for an ultra sound to check for a fatty liver. She called and said everything looked great, except for a small nodule that was found during my ultrasound. Now I am scheduled for an MRI on Tuesday and scared out of my mind that this is going to be liver cancer..... can someone please help? Has anyone been through something similar

You are having fear just over a possibility which is not the same as certainty.

There is no need to worry, that the world will end.

Be calm and get the test done, and most likely everything would be normal, and incidental.
