hello there.
pus in the liver or pyogenic liver abscess is usually caused by a bacteria, fungus or a parasite.
if it was a mass it would have pointed towards a malignancy. don't get tensed thinking that it's a cancer.
take your doctor's advise and follow the prescribed treatment an you will be fine.
sometimes you may require a surgical mode of treatment also.
consult a surgeon for further help.
regards
