Hello,
Thanks for writing to HealthcareMagic,
I've gone through your query and understand your concern,

Your father findings may indicate hypoechoic(dark)lesion in left lobe of liver and it measures 31 x 25 mm.
It may be due to many causes like adnoma,developing abscess,carcinoma etc.
Since liver is enlarged and coarse echo texture,it is important to investigate further.
