Undiagnosed liver lesions are important findings that can affect the physical and mental well-being of patients. They are usually incidental findings identified while clinicians are performing other imaging tests.

Both men and women can develop liver lesions, which may require surgical intervention. Knowing the key risk factors for common lesions can help clinicians confidently diagnose patients without costly workup.
