I was just diagnosed with amyopathic dermatomyositis, and I have been put through a lot of cancer screenings as this does not run in my family. All tests are normal, except regular ultrasound of the abdomen showed two non-specific liver lesions up to 3.2 cm. The previous CT scan of the abdomen for diverticulitis showed liver as normal without contrast. Can these lesions form in a year and be benign? I am stressed out. The report said hyperechogenic and likely hemangioma. I am scared to have an MRI.

Thank you doctor,
I have read that these are more common with lupus. Are hemangiomas common with all autoimmune diseases?
