I've had a large Liver simple Cyst for 10 years with no septations inside it, and have Ultrasounds every 6 months to watch it since it has been growing thru the years. In 12/2011 it was 6x6.5 and minimally complicated with one internal septation. Now 7/2012 (6 mos later it grew to 7x7.5) still minimally complicated but now has more septations. They want me to have an MRI with contrast to diagnois the septations. I read they can be malignant or benign.
I'm a 5 year survivor of Breast Cancer - Early Stage 1 (clean nodes), no metastizes, No radiation, no chemo, had a single Mastectomy. I guess that's why they are concerned, but I didn't think cancer can metastize with Stage 1, clean nodes, & mastectomy after this long. I had a PetScan a year ago 7/2011 with contrast - was Normal. MRI of Breast /Normal, US Breast/ Normal, Cancer Markers all Normal, and Liver Enzymes all Normal. I've been reading that Septations can also be benign. I would love hearing from anyone that can give me more information. Thank you
Understand your predicament and sympathize with you. Usually metastasis are multiple. But considering that it is a complex cyst, it could also be a primary tumor from the liver, either benign or malignant.
