Our expert says:
In about 5% of the population hereditary cysts are found in the liver. Some people have multiple cysts called polycystic disease of the liver which is genetic. Other causes could be due to parasites, infections or cancer. The doctor will be able to determine the origin by doing a biopsy or drainage of the cyst. They remove cysts when it becomes so big that it “squashes” the normal liver tissue and causes damage to the liver. Cancerous cysts have a typical appearance on sonar/MRI and are distinguishable from benign liver cysts.
