Please do a followup imaging, within 6 months. Cystic lesions can come and go, the followup imaging will show where you stand. The new data will allow your doctors to make the appropriate decisions.

If no contraindications, MRI/MRCP abdomen with and without contrast may be of benefit to further characterize.
