Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. Hepatic cysts could occur due to a few causes such as infections, primary liver lesions etc. While simple cysts are more likely due to benign causes, the presence of septations would require ruling out possible malignancy as a cause. It would be ebst to discuss the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with your treating hepatologist/ gastroenterologist.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
