Generally liver cysts are benign and cause no problems. They can cause discomfort if they get too large and depending on location they can possibly interfere with bile flow
A 17.8 mm cyst is about 7/10 inch in diameter. I wouldn't think that size would be a problem. The treatment for cysts that do become a problem is laparoscopic surgery so it is a very treatable disorder.

Good luck,
Mike
