PROMINENT LEFT LIVER LOBE

I just recently had an hide-a-scan done on my gallbladder (Isotope cholangiogram and gallbaldder ejection fraction)  I have had chronic abdomen pain for over 10 years upper left under rib.  After the test the finding where as written on the report:   There is good clearance of tracer activity by liver parenchyma.  Liver size normal.  There is a relatively prominent left liver lobe which extends under the left hemidiaphragm.  Gallbladder and bile ducts visible at 10 minutes.  Small-bowel activity at 45 minutes.  My question is what does A RELATIVELY PROMINENT LEFT LIVER LOBE mean?  Could that be causing my  chronic pain?
