In brief: Cysts

Pancreatic cysts are of many types, some benign some with malignant potential.
Liver cysts are less well understood. Increased lfts mean something--medication, alcohol, internal liver disorders--is causing liver dysfunction. Ultrasound is just a screening step for more tests, including ct, nuclear med, and other blood studies. Any cyst(s) in either organ may require a biopsy.
