Benign tumor of blood vessels

The benign tumor of blood vessels (hemangioma) is an irregular, dense accumulation of small, dilated vessels in the liver, which may resolve spontaneously. The surgical decision is influenced by the patient’s complaints, whether the hemangioma grows or not and if it grows, what is the pace of enlargement and how does it affect the organ’s functions.

If the size of the hemangioma grows rapidly or it reaches 8-10 cm, surgical removal may be necessary, because due to a trauma the growing abnormality may rupture causing internal bleeding.

There isn’t any available drug therapy for hemangioma. But detection of the disease can be easily solved by liver blood content scintigraphy.
