Yes; need followup: Liver abscesses are not normal. Even when asymptomatic or small, followup is necesssary to prove resolution. A source of infection helps us feel confident that we understand the risk factors associated with their development. When symptoms develop, they are usually not subtle and include pain, fevers, nausea, and overall feeling unwell.
