Brief Answer:
Likely to be non-cancerous

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
The CT scan and ultrasonography findings are suggestive of a cyst- meaning contains clear fluid.

It is most probably a benign lesion meaning not a cancer.
There is a possibility of a Lymphangioma, meaning collection of the lymph fluid.

This can be removed by operation , as it may be the reason for pain in abdomen ans is of a fair size to be worried about. There is no medicinal treatment for such lesions .
