Hemangioma cysts: Several possibilities left lobe cyst could be new.
One of the previously seen right sided cysts may not have been identified on scan today. Ultrasound can be tricky if overlying air in bowel etc depending on location of lesion
To avoid confusion, suggest that apples be compared to apples.
To clear present confusion,suggest an MRI to compare to original baseline or most recent prior.
