Hi All, I am new to this and I hope I will find some answers/info on my following health concern. My doctor wasn't very informative so I am reaching out to get some answers. I had an Ultra sound on my upper abdominal and the results showed that I have a tumor on my gallbladder as well as I have a fatty liver. Can a radiologist determine if the tumor on my gallbladder is malignant or benign as well as if my liver is in fact a fatty liver from an ultrasound? There are no biopsies schedule as my family physician feels I have no reason to worry. I am concerned, as my father had bile duct cancer that spread quickly throughout his body and passed away at an early age. I appreciate your replies. Thank you all in advance.

Go back to the doctor.
Express your concerns and your family history. If your doctor doesn't do anything, find another doctor. Pretty stupid of a doctor not to biopsy or remove the gallbladder with a known tumor and a family history of cancer in that area. You need your concerns calmed and a good explanation for non-treatment.

Good Luck
