    [HCM affecting other organs?]

    Hi, Gang,

    Hubby had a CAT scan Friday for the mass that was incidentally found on his liver while they were doing is echo. We don't know the results of that test yet.

    Has anyone ever heard of HCM affecting other organs in the body? Wondering if this 'mass' is linked somehow to his HCM. (I may have asked this in a previous email, so excuse me if I'm repeating myself! )

    Info, anyone?

    I am not aware of any connection between HCM and any mass on other organs. I can not think of how the 2 can be connected. Remember HCM is a mutation in the cell structure of the heart, the liver is created by an entirely different type of cell, therefore no connection.

    all the best,
