Liver function tests are good and u/s also good - what does this mean and what can I do?

Help gratefully received. I am googling and very worried by what I read.

    Forgot to say that liver stiffness test did not reveal any signs of fibrosis or cirrhosis.

      i am 61. I was having an annual routing abdominal u/s - following Breast Cancer 10 years ago. U/s detected a very small cyst so I was sent for the further liver scan.

      the cyst is 1 cm and clear but during the echo scan the thickness of my liver was revealed.

      None of the medical professionals have said much about this. I have drunk alcohol on a regular but moderate basis.

      Hi Margaret83181. I wouldn't be too worried about one small liver cyst. Apparently they are quite common. My liver cysts are numerous & large, and impact considerably on my quality of life. However, not being a doctor myself, I've never heard that the 'thickness' of the liver was considered a problem.
