Hello and welcome to HCM,

The ultrasound report of your right upper abdomen reveals a normal structured liver. There is no mass lesion in the liver.
The portal vein (vein that carries blood to the liver) and biliary channels (channels that drain bile from liver to the gall bladder) are within normal limits.

The only abnormality being presence of multiple stones in the gall bladder.
This condition is called cholelithiasis.
The treatment for cholelithiasis is cholecystectomy (removal of gall bladder surgically).

Thanks and take care.
