Hello, Anon. Thank you for posting.

You will need to discuss this with the surgeon who will perform your procedure. I can give you some general information, however. Treatment for a liver cyst typically involves general anesthesia and the laparoscopic removal of a portion of the cyst wall. Recovery time from this minimally invasive surgery to remove liver cysts is short. Once removed, liver cysts rarely recur. Unlike simple cysts, cystic liver tumors are growths in the liver that may develop into liver cancer.
