      Hello I am new here and hoping to ask you a few questions about the complex liver cyst you mentioned in a much older post! I came across it from googling my very own complex liver cyst and would love to know more about how things turned out for you as I am pretty nervous!!!
      Thanks. Lily.
      Oh I joined this to contact you but cannot figure out how to send you a private message.
