What does "9 mm low density lesion in the liver" indicate?

I had a pelvic/abdominal ct done over a month ago and they said that i have a 9 mm low density lesion in the liver. They said it is indeterminate and could be a hepatic cyst. Other than that the ct said normal abdominal ct. Should I worry about liver cancer?

Hi
I can understand your tension regarding 9 mm low density lesion.you said that it is indeterminate lesion ie..cyst.some times low density lesions can be adenoma due to presence of fat.dont worry.follow up the lesion in ultrasound.this is the problem we encounter in imaging as very small lesions difficult to characterise.if it shows increase in size in follow up scans & the lesion is accessble for biopsy , plan for biopsy.
Thank you
With best regards
