Benign liver cyst is normal and it is due to age.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX

You shouldn't worry at all.
Benign liver cyst is age related findings and it is considered as normal finding.
But cyst size should be regularly monitored.It can be done by USG of abdomen.You need not to go through CT scan all the time.
Cyst is not related to statin at all.You should continue taking statins.

Get well soon.
Hope i have answered your query.
Further queries are most welcome.
