A liver hemangioma is a non-cancerous mass. Yours is not large at all - it is approximately .8 inch by .6 inch and is located in the right lobe of your liver. Hemangiomas are basically tangled up blood vessels and in the vast majority of case are left untreated and they cause no harm. Hemangiomas do not become cancerous.
Your doctor must be sure that the SOL (space occupying lesion) is in fact a hemangioma and not a malignant tumor. Frequently follow up tests such as a MRI or CT scan are sometimes ordered to confirm the diagnosis.
I wouldn't worry too much about this but i would make sure that your doctor is certain that the mass seen on ultrasound is indeed a hemangioma.

Good luck,
Mike
