ever heard of this?

I had an abdominal ultrasound done yesterday to check my gallbladder. All was fine. Incidental finding of a cyst on my liver. I read that these are common and always found incidentally while doing tests for other things. ANyone heard of this or had one? It kind of freaks me out. Dr. and radiologist were not concerned. Says it is common.

I also have a cyst on my liver. very common I am told. I was told I had it back in 2000 when I was pregnant and having bad heartburn issues. I had a sono and a ct scan 2 weeks ago to check on it. It has gotten a bit bigger but they say it is okay.

I had a sonogram last month, and the doc said I had some kind of "growth" - not really a cyst - on my liver. He dismissed it as a common "birthmark-type" phenomenon.

Same kind of situation, I guess.

I have one on my Pancreas. I was told unless I developed other symptoms, then it won't ever cause any problems.

I have a cyst on my liver too and the doctor wasn't concerned with it.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one then. I went back to my doctor today and he said he has seen "hundreds" of reports like mine. Nothing to be concerned about and very incidental and I would have never known had I not had the abdominal U/S.
