Benign disease: The hepatic adenoma is estrogen sensitive and can grow substantially; the hemangioma is a collection of blood vessels which can proliferate under hormonal influence, estrogen, again. Hepatic ct or ultrasound is recommended to assess for growth or remission. Most times, neither cause significant clinical problems. One would have to stop ocs, though.
