Should I be concerned about an 11cm liver cyst? What causes liver cysts?

Maybe: If there's a possibility that it's an echinococcus -- i.e., you were around a dog in sheep-raising country -- then find out whether that might be what it is. Otherwise, forget it.

Unless the imaging person is concerned about malignancy, don't give the thing another thought. ...Read more

Trust it is not echinococcus. ...Read more
