Ultrasound showed hepatis hepatic hemangioma. Can nothing be done?

Hi I am a 23 year old woman. I found the beginning of December 7 * 6mm hepatis hepatic hemangioma on ultrasound I went back and now it is 7 * 8 mm. the question then is this: is it really can not do anything if only to observe, such as the Estonian doctors say?

hemagiomas are benign, as long as they don't grow very big (risk of rupture and bleed when very large), but 6mm is tiny. Observation is perfectly fine (once a year at the most!)
