In brief: No

By definition benign hepatic or liver lesions don't spread or else they are not benign but malignant.
Rarely "benign" that is non-cancer, non-malignant liver lesions grow big enough to rupture or cause symptoms requiring surgery, but most are incidental findings during imaging study such as us, ct scan or MRI & are of no consequence other than usually followed over time to confirm not growing.
