Benign liver tumour. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan of the upper abdomen showing focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH, red circle) of the liver (blue). FNH is the second most common tumour of the liver. It is characterised by the abnormal organisation of the normal constituents of the liver. It occurs mainly in women and no treatment is needed in asymptomatic patients. Resectioning of the liver may be required if the liver ruptures and starts to bleed. There is little chance of the tumour becoming cancerous and FNH has been known to disappear spontaneously.
