In brief: Biopsy

First you must know you have a liver tumor. This could be discovered by ultrasound, cat scan or mri.
Some of these x-ray findings can diagnose benign tumors. Other liver tumors will need biopsy in order to prove whether or not they are benign or not.

In brief: Benign liver tumors

The appearance of the tumor on ct scan, ultrasound, or MRI can provide much information about a liver tumor, specifically whether it has features of a benign tumor versus a malignant tumor. The only definitive way to assess the tumor, however, is to biopsy it so that a pathologist can examine it under the microscope.
