Hi and welcome to HCM.
You obviously have symptomatic liver haemangioma. This is one of the most common liver "tumors". It is immposible to be 100% sure that this is haemangioma considering ultrasound only,but it is good that some more serious liver malignancies are ruled out.
Haemangiomas cause problems when become large enough so it can press surrounding structures or liver casule. Usually it happens when it measure more than 5cm but even smaller cysts can do it as well.
So consult your surgeon about modalty of treatment and do further tests to exlude other liver lesions.
Wish you good health.

General Surgeon Dr. Hari Charan Perigela's  Response
Haemangioma is one of the commonest benign condition of the liver.
Liver function tests are not much elevated.So,nothing to worry.
The pain may be of musculo skeletal pain.
Please take muscle relaxant and Rabeprazole tablets.
Wish you good health.
