I had a ultrasound and CTscan that showed multiple hepatic cysts. one is bilobed 2.6x1.3 cm laterally in the right lobe of liver. In addition there are 5 less than 1cm cysts within the liver. No solid hepatic lesions identified. Could this be the cause of my stomach pain. I have not heard back from my doctor since last week when he ordered the test.

All types of liver cyst may cause abdominal pain or abdominal discomfort in the right upper abdomen, under the rib cage.
Pain, usually, becomes more prominent when cysts grow larger and when bleeding inside the cysts have occurred.
Abdominal bloating, nausea, early satiety or fullness, are additional symptoms when the cysts are symptomatic.
Your doctor will determine the nature of these cysts (often, according to the typical appearance the true diagnosis is made).
