Due to suffering of frequent gas and acidity USG was done two months ago and liver cysts of internal septation measure 14 into 18 mm. This was my mother's USG report and we see a gastroenterologist who do not talk any word about this problem but in USG report it is seen. In future from this liver cysts has any chance of danger?

The cyst is very small, it has to be checked every 6-9 months to see if it remains same size or increasing. Most cysts remain the same size and hence do not require any treatment.In case of any doubt the doctor may advise a CT scan.

LABOUR PAINS ARE ON THE WHOLE UTERUS AND NOT AT A SINGLE POINT. THEY FOLLOW PERFECT RHYTHM, INCREASE IN FREQUENCY AND DURATION. YOUR EXPECTED DATE IS 10 SEPT. I THINK WHAT YOUR ARE EXPERIENCING IS BECAUSE OF THE HEAD IMPACTION IN THE LOWER PART OF YOUR ABDOMEN.
