Hemangioma (Definition)

An hemangioma is a condition in which a person has an enlarged, abnormal growth of blood vessels on his skin and/or elsewhere inside his body. Large hemangiomas, multiple ones, or dangerously located ones can cause serious problems. Babies with small or few "strawberry" hemangiomas on the skin ...Read more

Had a cat scan of brain. Aunt had a hemangioma a few years ago. No other tumors in family. What is the risk of this scan giving me brain cancer?

Had a cat scan of brain. Aunt had a hemangioma a few years ago. No other tumors in family. What is the risk of this scan giving me brain cancer?

Very very low: Brain tumors are not very heritable. Hemangiomas are not really brain tumors but actually tumors of the brain blood vessels and to my knowledge are not caused by radiation. ...Read more

My almost 3 month old has multiple hemangiomas. They said they may need to do an MRI to make sure she doesn't have any on her brain. Next step?

My almost 3 month old has multiple hemangiomas. They said they may need to do an MRI to make sure she doesn't have any on her brain. Next step?

Get the MRI's: I'll bet Junior doesn't have any in the brain, but let's see. Hemangiomas in kids tend to disappear or at least shrink; port wine stains tend to stay around. Unless they're huge and consume platelets, they're a cosmetic issue. Many people love them. Some people hate them. Junior can decide about laser Rx when he/she grows up. ...Read more

I have a "likely hemangioma in what appears to be the T8 vertebral body." Could this be related two my two brain lesions? Thank you.

I have a "likely hemangioma in what appears to be the T8 vertebral body." Could this be related two my two brain lesions? Thank you.

Doubtful : A hemangioma is almost always a benign collection of blood vessels. These are seen on MRIs quite commonly and rarely are the cause of symptoms. They are incidental findings usually. I think it's highly doubtful that they are related to your brain lesions. ...Read more

See your doctor: See your doctor again for an evaluation. Another MRI may be taken. Often migraines or headaches are caused by a fall or accident. Neck or jaw issues often present as headaches. See a doctor that is trained in head and neck pain. ...Read more

Have hashimoto's; demyelinating brain lesions, one atypical; benign vertebral lesions, one atypical hemangioma. R these connected, or possible MS too?

Have hashimoto's; demyelinating brain lesions, one atypical; benign vertebral lesions, one atypical hemangioma. R these connected, or possible MS too?

Not connected: Hemangiomas and multiple sclerosis lesions can be difficult to differentiate on mri. Brain lesions of the demyelinating type are usually caused by multiple sclerosis but need to be diagnosed carefully, especially when atypical. Hemangiomas and multiple sclerosis are not connected. ...Read more

35 yo f w/rrms. Brain mris every 6 mo. Recent report: "t1&t2 hyperintensity, could be hemangioma in right frontal bone." do I need more testing?

35 yo f w/rrms. Brain mris every 6 mo. Recent report: "t1&t2 hyperintensity, could be hemangioma in right frontal bone." do I need more testing?

Further testing: If you have been having an MRI every 6 months, it's possible this hyperintensity showed up before, but was not reported. Sometimes small versions of this are missed during other tests. Having another MRI in the future should be an adequate method to study this. If you have another MRI 6 months from now, that should be helpful enough. ...Read more

Liver CT shows growth of hemangioma 4.6cm & 3 new lesions. Onc didn't agree with it so ordered mri. Brain MRI added d/t nausea. Could this be mets?

Liver CT shows growth of hemangioma 4.6cm & 3 new lesions. Onc didn't agree with it so ordered mri. Brain MRI added d/t nausea. Could this be mets?

Possible: Although benign etiology like hemangioma is possible, however, due to your history of breast cancer 2-3 years ago- i think an MRI of the liver should be done to really rule out possibility of metastatic disease- especially with reported- " new lesions" on ct scan. Or other options is to get a pet scan. Having said that, i really do hope that it turns out to be nothing serious. ...Read more

What would cause tingling in the arms, neck, and fingers. Had a normal brain MRI and neck MRI, the neck MRI only showed a straightening of the lordosis and a hemangioma at the C6. What else is left?

What would cause tingling in the arms, neck, and fingers. Had a normal brain MRI and neck MRI, the neck MRI only showed a straightening of the lordosis and a hemangioma at the C6. What else is left?

Numbness and tinglin: What you may be experiencing is neuropathy. There are many causes for neuropathy that will require further evaluation in addition to the imaging studies that you mention. I would follow up with your doctor to have electrolyte levels, vitamins D and B12 measured. Best of health to you! ...Read more

I have hemangioma in D2 vertebral body. .is this dangerous? My Doctor didnt mind it

No: If it is truly a hemangioma seen in one of your vertebrae, no problem. Hemangiomas are seen in about 10-15 percent of patients that undergo a lumbar MRI. They simply represent a higher density of vascular tissue in an area of the vertebrae, but can appear as a lesion in the vertebrae on an MRI scan. They are usually of no clinical significance. ...Read more
