is it easy to tell the difference between cancer in the liver or a cystfrom an ultrasound?
Hello hieron, Ultrasound can be used for primary diagnosis to confirm presence of any liver pathology. For understanding if it is benign or malignant it is important to go for CT scan, blood tests and also to go for an ultrasound guided liver biopsy or liver aspirate. Take the advice of your gastroenterologist and proceed. Take care!
