Unclear : I am not aware of liver polyp per se. This is possibly something that does occur in the gall bladder or at the ampulla of vater. The gall bladder is technically part of the liver and rarely can have polyps. These can become cancerous. The ampulla of vater is where the common duct and pancreatic duct come together. This can also have polyps. I am not aware of liver polyps treatment. See a GI doc.
