In brief: Rarely

For liver pain to develop, the most common problem is expansion of the capsule due to an enlarging malignancy.
The most common liver disease is fibrosis or cirrhosis secondary to alcoholism, or hepatitis. Here the primary complication is portal hypertension wherein the liver produces ascites.
