In brief: Blood vessels?

"hypervascular" means "many blood vessels.
" you must be referring to a ct or MRI scan with contrast, where the radiologist is referring to a high amount of contrast localizing to the spot in the liver. The question people want to know is "what is it?" and sometimes that's not possible to know on a simple scan alone, further tests may be needed.
