worried about ultrasound report - gall bladder, liver, spleen

Male age 36 - abdominal pain in the upper left side
Ultrasound report shows
Hepatosplenomegaly
Gallbladder adenomyomatosis
Splenic cyst 11.2 x 0.9 x 1.1 cm
Liver shows eiffusely increased echogenicity - the liver is enlarged measuring 18.5 cm in length.
Gallbladder shows echogenic foci in the wall.  No wall thickening or pericholecystic fluid is seen.  Common bile duct is 4 mm w/i normal limits.
Spleen is enlarged measuring 14.6 cm in length. There is a cyst 11.2 x 0.9 x 1.1 cm at the inferior edge of the spleen.

Could this be advanced liver disease or cancer?  Blood test show everything in range except liver enzymes at 62.

the dr that ordered the test is the one to consult for answers to your questions.  When is your follow up appointment?  Wrtite all those questions down and don't leave his/her office until they are answered!  If you want to know right away, the GI section has a dr that will give you some answers for a small fee.
good luck
