Cyst: There is no way to remove a choledochal cyst other than surgery performed by an experienced abdominal surgeon. These cysts can become infected and I recommend that you consult abdominal surgeon for evaluation and advice. You may have to consult one at a university hospital department of general surgery if you don't have an experienced abdominal surgeon locally.

Cyst or not: From what it says what you have is compatible with a cyst but there may be other things that look like it Discuss with your Dr. I have not seen your study.
