liver hemangiomas

After a year and a half of pain, testing and no answers I was finally diagnosed with liver hemangiomas.  I have a  7 cm x 7cm mass in my caudate lobe, and 2 12 mm growths, one in my left lobe and one in my right lobe.  I have not had any of the usual symptoms for the larger masses, I actually have had middle upper abdominal pain off and on for the last year and I was curious as to if the mass in the caudate lobe could be causing this pain. Could it possibly be constricting my portal vein, hepatic artery, common bile duct and/or putting pressure on my gall bladder?  If this is a possibility, could that in turn cause the middle upper abdominal pain?  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
