Liver cysts are thin-walled sacs filled with air, fluids, or semi-solid material. Liver cysts occur in approximately 5% of people. The majority of cysts are benign, but all cancers are able to produce malignant cysts. Patients typically present with a single liver cyst, although multiple cysts sometimes develop. Liver cysts rarely impair the liver's ability to function.

Most liver cysts do not cause symptoms. If they do occur, symptoms include:

Upper abdominal fullness, discomfort, or pain.
Sudden and severe right upper quadrant and shoulder pain caused by bleeding into the cyst, but this occurs In only in a small group of patients,

Diagnosis & Treatment

Cysts are diagnosed using ultrasound or with a CT scan. Only patients with symptoms require treatment, which consists of surgically removing a large portion of the cyst wall. Only removing the fluid from the cyst is ineffective because it will fill up again within days.

The procedure is performed laparoscopically, requiring only 2-3 small incisions with little chance of recurrence.


You have nothing to worry about.

I was wondering about the "couple small areas of internal septation"... Impression:  Cyst RIGHT lobe of liver.  does internal septation mean anything?  No mention of size either.  


Hope you're doing well.  Thumbs up!!
