Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
Presence of haemangioma in liver is a common ultrasound finding and as such there is no need of any treatment.
You should go for repeat ultrasound imaging at interval of 1-2 years for evaluation of increment in size of haemangioma.
Gall bladder polyp treatment depends on the size.
If it is > 10 mm then surgery is advisable.
Size of gall bladder polyp in your case is just 6 mm so there is no need of any intervention.
Rest of the ultrasound imaging findings is in normal limits.
You should also consult with internal medicine specialist/ surgeon.
Take care
