Possibility of non cancerous fatty tumor near liver, feels hard, stomach growling. Why?

I recently went to a doctor about a possible fatty tumor on my right side around where my liver is (right side)
he confirmed it feels like a fatty tumor, non-cancerous. However he did not test it or anything just felt it. Now on the right side of my body around where my liver is, it feels harder than the left side. It's not like rock hard but it feels very firm. Also i have a really bad problem with my stomach growling and it does it all day everyday around that area of my body. Could this be related to the tumor? The stomach growling problems? Or is this just my liver and i might be over reacting. Keep in mind there is no pain in the tumor, and no pain in the side where it's harder.

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic and thanks fot the query.
Well it is not easiy to verify fatty liver without ultrasound and LFT findings so you should do it and everything will be more clear. cancer is the last thing to think of. it sounds to me like like fatty liver too associated with gastritis or gerd so you need to do gastroscopy to rule this out. growling is also not a usualy sigh of tumor and if symptoms persist you need to do more detailed gastroenterologix work up.
Wish you good health.
