    CT Scan shows Atrophy of Left Liver Lobe. Is this serious?

    Hello. I was recently in the ER for an upper respiratory infection and had a CT scan. I was advised by the ER doctor to follow up with my primary care doctor because of the results. It said "The left lobe of the liver is atrophic," "Atrophic, somewhat lobular left lobe of liver," and "the prostate is mildly prominent".
    What does this mean? Is it serious?
