In brief: None

You cannot make a diagnosis from that information.
It is likely a benign cyst, but it could be something else. A biopsy is required to make the diagnosis.

In brief: More imaging

Recommend a ct scan to better visualize the area.
Then see a hepatologist to help interpret the imaging studies.
