FNH or Hemangioma?

Hello,
I'm a White Male 55yrs 180lbs recently sent to a Gastro Dr. for further defined Dx.  
I have had both MRI and CT to help determine slightly elev. white blood cell counts, which I have had for yrs., along with trace blood in urine (non visible).  First, sent to pulmonary Dr. for chest Dx. due to heavy smoking (1-1/2 pk/day) to evaluate cancer risk,(OK).  Chest Ct revealed "lobulated density in the medial left lobe of the liver measuring 5.1x4.3cm w/central hypodensity."  "Likely representing, prominent hemangioma or focal nodular hyperplasia."  Sent for Ab CT by primary DR.   Two CT's showed slight diff. in size, which could be due to area of CT slice.  Two days ago I had ultra sound needle biopsy, awaiting results.    I have no symptoms, no pain (at least before the biopsy), feel fine, look fine (personal opinion), generally in good health.

From what I've been reading here, FNH is mostly related to females, and both Dx. due not seem to concern my Dr. or myself at this point.  Should I be concerned?  Is there another possibility we should be exploring?  What actions are likely if either Dx. are confirmed?  Any info is appreciated.

Thanks in advance
