No bumps / lumps: Or other odd-looking lesions. If this is the result of your imaging study, it's probably good news. On imaging, liver should have no obvious texture, any more than you can see from a distance when it's calf liver on a plate for dinner.

Normal: This is a radiological term meaning that it looks similar throughout the whole substance, without any unusual spots or areas. Pat yourself on the back and keep doing what you are. If there are other problem at
least the liver is probably not the cause.

Yes: If this is not homogenous, then I might indicate some issues. Did you get any ultrasound? Please see a doctor.
