Hi, welcome to HCM. Thanks for writing in.
Normal size of liver is around 15 cm. However there are variation on height of persons. You are not having serious disease.
Increased echogenicity suggests fatty liver. Vomiting may be related to gastritis. You may have advised sonography to rule out other causes.
There is no risk for your life. Dont be panic. If are taking alcohol, just leave that habit. No need for any special treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
