Hemangioma is non cancerous (benign tumor) bunch of blood vessels. In the liver no treatment is required.

Granulomatous disease is basically recurrent or persistent intracellular bacterial and fungal infections which lead to granuloma formation. Granuloma is to make a wall around the causative organism. Since the infection is walled off; no active treatment is required.

So your ultrasound report does not show anything serious or significant and thus does not need an immediate medical attention.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
