Explanation Of The Results Of Liver Cystic Abdominal Ultrasound?
Hello … I want to ask … My mother has had 2 operations of liver cysts … And the results of the ultrasound just stated: There is an isoechoic lesion with a regular border with regular calcification between the right lobe of the liver and agglomerating the upper and middle pole of the right kidney measuring 10, 7cm x 7.00cm x 11.0cm. Is that dangerous? And what should be done … because my mother does not want to be operated again for the third time … Please answer … Thank you 🙂
Hello Ki No, Thank you for the question.
Cysts are structures in the form of fluid-filled sacs, which can appear anywhere on the human body. Liver cysts are cysts that occur in the liver. The cause of the appearance of liver cysts is not known with certainty. These cysts can appear in various sizes. Small cysts usually do not cause symptoms and therefore do not require special treatment but still need to be monitored for progress. However, large cysts can cause malfunctioning of the liver or pressure on the surrounding tissue / organ so that this condition requires further treatment.
Liver cysts can be identified by ultrasound examination, CT scan, or MRI. Large cysts and pressure on the surrounding tissue / organs such as the results of the ultrasound that you submit require further treatment, namely surgical removal of the cyst. There is no other way to deal with liver cysts of this size. But, of course, the treatment will be determined by the surgeon after the doctor examines your mother and knows the results of this ultrasound. Please you and your mother discuss this condition with the doctor who treats your mother. I understand that it is unpleasant to undergo continuous surgery but this action is needed to prevent further complications. Your mother can discuss with your doctor what complications can occur if your mother does not undergo surgery so that your mother also understands the risks so that your mother can make the right decision regarding the next treatment.
Hopefully this information helps you.
