General Surgeon 's  Response
Apr 2013
Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
These are common cysts and in 97% cases benign and you dont need any treatment unless there is rapid growth or maliganncy potential.At this point you need only frequent follow up to check size growth both of liver and kidney cysts. Enlraged prostate should be treated by urologist and certain medicines may be necessary. Wish you good health. Regards
