Welcome to e health forum.

Based on the information here and considering that you have a family history of various cancers, it is likely that you may have a genetic predisposition for neoplastic diseases.

At this moment, it may not be confirmed that all your lesions (in the Kidney, liver, gallbladder, and lungs) are due to cancer, but they could also be due to benign forms too.

There is a slight risk that cancers can originate from cysts within the body. But the risk is higher in complex renal cysts , and this is the reason regular ultrasound and other imaging studies are requested during follow up examinations by your doctors.

It would be recommended that you continue to work with doctors treating you, and seek proper help.

I hope this helps.
