A 57-year-old female asked:

Incidental finding 11/21: benign r lobe liver hemangioma (10x9mm). gp suggests a gensurg for f/u in near future. am very worried, is this generally removed or monitored given the size & does it tend to progress (dx'd: steatosis&ckd3 in 2020)?

You may wish to get a second opinion about the feasibility of radiofrequency ablation of the lesion, rather than open surgery, It is imperative that you address the steatosis, by avoiding alcohol entirely and if you are overweight, by losing weight. Wish you good health!
