Hello Luehka,

If getting a second opinion would be peace of mind for you; do it.

Secondly, the granuloma and fatty liver is recent for you. Usually, granulomas are benign, though it should be definitely monitored as well as your history with bilateral cortical hyperdensities (I assumed the cortical issue is renal).

Thirdly, in my opinion, the fatty liver issue should be further investigated. There are many conditions that can cause a fatty liver.

Good luck.
