Hello, sbears123,
Your ultrasound was negative for gallstones which possibly rules out
gallbladder problem as the reason for your right sided abdominal pain.
I am glad that all the blood tests and endoscopy were negative as well.
It is possible to have trapped gas in the part of the large intestine that
is behind the liver , called the "Hepatic Flexure" which is a bend or curve.
If you have constipation problems , this could be the reason for pain.
Otherwise , it could be musculoskeletal.
As for the small cysts and hemangiomas , unless they are more than
5 cm. in size , you don't have to worry. They don't cause problems.
If they are big , hemangiomas can bleed and cysts can get infected,
rupture or bleed. You may have a followup ultrasound of the liver in
six months to see if there have been any change in size of these.
I wish you well.
