Hi and welcomw to hcm.
I don't think this is an emergency. It can be gallbladder attack or gastritis. If you have fever and progressing pap , you need to visit hospital. Such small cyst usually can't cause any symptoms and it should just be frequently evaluated by ultrasound. Also follow some hepatoptrotective diet till symptoms subside. Wish you good health. Regards
