Thanks for posting your query.
Liver Heamangioma is generally slow growing and very rarely causes symptoms.
You should go for repeat ultrasound imaging along with CT/ MRI scan abdomen for better evaluation of liver pathology.
There may be some different pathology apart from haemangioma.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ gastroenterologist and should go for thorough check up.
Your mother should take proper treatment for faster recovery.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
