Angiomyolipoma on left kidney - 6 cm

Was told yesterday that MRI (which was done for 6 cm liver mass shown on u/s) showed 6 cm angiomyolipoma on my left kidney. PCP is referring me to urologist.

I've done some research and seems like >4cm higher change of complications, like bleeding, etc.

I'm wondering if anyone knows about this condition, and whether there is any special diet I should be following, or any risks that could have contributed to this size. I haven't found a lot on this forum or other forums, so any input would be great
