Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

CT is a good test but it does not visualize gallstones, does not tell anything about the stomach or large intestine. Hepatomegally or hemangioma do not cause any pain. So your symptoms are rather caused by something else.
If you have also upper middle abdominal pain, stomach issues are possible and gastroscopy needs to be done.

If there is a pain/discomfort in the upper right and radiates to the back, gallstones are the reason. In such case abdominal ultrasound is necessary.

If you have any diarrhea/constipation, blood in stool, weight loss, large intestine issue is the reason and colonoscopy needs to be done.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
