radiology report questions

What does "There is a 1 cm hypodensity in the right lobe of the liver near the dome" and "Subcentimeter hypodensity in the left kidney is too small to accurately characterize" mean? The report also says "Subtle 1 cm hypodensity near the liver dome. Metastatic focus cannot be completely excluded."

these can be cysts or other benign lesions.  was this on a CT scan, MRI or ultrasound?  its probably nothing but you may need another type of confirmatory scan.

There is a 1 cm cyst within the left hepatic lobe.  Subcentimeter hypodensity in
segment IVa, and segment VI are too small to characterize, statistically benign.
Gallbladder is nondistended.  No bile duct dilation.  Hepatic and portal veins
are patent.
