Liver Hemangioma or cancer?

Hi, I am a 27 year old female, generally healthy.

I started having upper abdominal pain about 3 weeks ago. The pain is mild to moderate but almost constant. An ultrasound test showed a 4.5cm hyperechoic lesion in the left lobe of my liver! I was told that most likely it is a hemangioma, but it could also be cancer?? My liver function test is normal. I am scheduled for a CT scan next week and I am freaking out now!

Can a hemangioma cause the kind of gastric pain that I'm experiencing? The pain gets worse after eating. It feels like there is something in my stomach and I can't eat much. I'm already underweight and I can't afford to lose more.

Does anyone know of any non surgical treatment options to remove or shrink a hemangioma?

PLEASE HELP! I'm so scared!
