Probably cyst; incid: If you weren't having problems with your liver (ie that wasn't the purpose of the ordering doc) then don't worry much about the incidental finding. While there is no way to know for sure w/o seeing the image & a biopsy, from the sounds of it, it looks like a simple cyst (which is fluid filled and so less dense -hypoattentuating) in the liver. Anyone can get small 1 & not have any problems. TTYD
