What is the difference a hemangioma and portwine stain birthmarks?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Structure: The port wine stain is a shallow collection of dilated blood vessels just under the skin that form a wine colored patch on one side of the face, (upper/mid/lower ) these can signal abnormalities in the brain on the same side. Hemangioma is a less specific term applied to a jumble of blood vessels, sometimes appearing as a strawberry mark but could be a cystic structure deeper in the skin.
