Liver Hemangioma In Adults
Have 3 flu hemangiomas on liver. As adult only I'm getting lots of small red spots filled with blood all over body, face and scalp. Due to liver? Name?
Probably nothing: If the red spots on your skin are cherry hemangiomas / "Campbell de Morgan spots", relax, they mean absolutely nothing. Maybe one person has a hemangioma or two or three in the liver and it's a non-issue itself -- a Gorbachev birthmark, a curiosity. Be thankful for good health. ...Read more

Yes: An MRI with IV contrast is very useful in diagnosing liver hemangiomas. They have a very characteristic pattern of how they take up and release the IV contrast in comparison to other liver lesions. The best MRI would be a "hemangioma protocol" where they take a few extra pictures later than would be typically done for a liver mri. ...Read more

I just had a normal annual check up and through an ultrasound I was diagnosed with liver hemangioma, what are the risk factors?
Can a benign silghtly echogenic liver hemangioma seen in ultrasound grow from 1.7 cm to 2 cm in about 1-1/2 months?
Maybe, maybe not: Ultrasound is useful but has an error rate based on the examiner's methods. Angulation involves the movement of probe back and forth to better visualize various tissues. A cyst or growth can appear to be x cm on one angulation and x+y on another angulation. So, to compare two different exams, the techniques must have been identical (hard to accomplish with ultrasound). I recommend MRI or CT ...Read more
