Liver Cysts

Hi Medical Community

My recent abdomen scan on 17/04/12 compared to previous study dated 23/9/2010 :

The liver shows normal size and echo pattern. There is a well-defined anechoic cyst in the caudate lobe, which measures 4.5 x 4.4 x 3.6cm. This is slightly larger than seen on previous ultrasound study.There is no internal septa, mural thickening or solid component detected. There are also a few small subcentimeter anechoic cysts elsewhere in the liver, without sinister features. The portal veins are patent.
The spleen is normal in size with no focal lesion.
The gallbladder is unremarkable with no stone seen. The biliary tree is not dilated with the common duct measuring 3 mm.
There is a stable 4.2 x 3.5 x 2.5 cm simple cyst in the left renal upper pole.Both kidneys are otherwise normal.
The pancreatic head and body are unremarkable. The pancreatic head is obsured by overlying bowel gas.
Conclusion
1.Hepatic cysts are noted.The largest is the caudate lobe shows slight interval enlargement since the previous study.However, no sinister features are detected.
2.The simple cyst in the left kidney is stable.
Known/Minor

Could I check if the liver, Kidney cysts grow bigger should all these cysts caused problem?

Please advise.

Thank You and Best Regards
Lilian

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. If the cysts are large it can cause pressure effects on the adjacent organs or tissue and so can disrupt liver functions or kidney functions. The ultrasound does not reflect any pressure effects, blood tests for liver  and kidney functions may be mandatory to study the functional effects. Based on this and the clinical symptoms therapy is planned. If no intervention is needed now, you may need to follow up regularly to see for changes in size. Discuss the possibilities with your consulting doctor.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
