Liver Hemangioma

I have been having a strange feeling under my right rib for about 3 weeks now. I went to the dr. and she sent me for an ultrasound of my gallbladder and liver. She said everything looked good except they did find what looks like a liver hemangioma that is 7mm. She wants me to have a CT now and I am very scared and having anxiety over this. I am afraid it is going to turn out to be cancer. What are the chances the ultrasound is incorrect and it is actually a tumor.

You are unlikely to be diagnosed with liver cancer for lesion of that size.  I'm not a MD but my friend is a radiologist and I have abnormal CT findings like that myself.  It's probably not even big enough for biopsy.  If any suspicion, you will repeat CT in a few months to watch for growth.
