Detailed Answer:
Hi.
The main question is if surgery is required or not. Well,I think not since these are very probably just simple cyst and hemangioma. If there is no liver cirrhosis then risk of these lesion to become malignant,is very low. I don't think your pain is related to this unless these are larger than 10cm. pain may be caused by gallbladder issue or hepatitis alone. you should just habe frequent CT follow ups every 6 months and check alfa feto protein. wish you good health. Regards
