Please interpret my ultrasound result
Hello Stef2011, StephenCastlgrag, and everybody,

I'm 56 and my liver ultrasound has been normal until this one in January, 2014.

Please help me understand my ultrasound results :

"Mild hepatomegaly liver measuring 17.2 cm in craniocaudal dimension, normal range up to 15.5 cm. Liver echogenicity is probably at the upper limits of normal. Tiny thinly septated 7 mm cyst is noted in the lower anterior segment right lobe, hapatic segment 5."

The septated 7mm cyst was not there 6 months ago. Should I be worry about this result? Thank you very much in advance for any comments.

the cyst could be a hemangioma, but they dont normally show septa. Could be a small echinococcus cyst from dog contact, they are sepdated. HCC is unlikely, but an MRI should be performed for further clarification.
At least the next ultrasound should be no later than 6 month.
