Hepatocellualar Adenomas are less common benign liver tumors. They occur most often in women of childbearing age and have been linked to oral contraceptive use, where higher doses of estrogen were used. Since these tumors generally do not cause symptoms, most are never detected and they rarely cause problems. Hepatocellular adenomas may grow in women who take hormone pills, so doctors will often advise discontinuing birth control pills or hormones to prevent further growth. The goal of this treatment is to shrink the tumor, but if this does not occur, surgery may be indicated.
