What is Liver Hemangioma?

Description of the disease

Liver hemangioma is a benign tumor that arises from the blood vessels of the liver. It consists of capillaries and usually ranges in size from a few millimeters to several centimeters. Most people with liver hemangioma do not have symptoms and it is usually discovered incidentally during examinations for other reasons.


  • Cavernous (consists of large vessels)
  • Capillary (consists of small capillaries)


Most patients with liver hemangioma do not experience symptoms. However, in rare cases, with large tumor sizes or rupture, symptoms such as pain in the upper right abdomen, bleeding, paleness, and increased drowsiness may occur.


The exact causes of liver hemangioma are not fully understood. However, it is believed that genetic predisposition and certain hormonal changes may play a role in the development of this disease.


Ultrasound, CT scans, and MRI are used to diagnose liver hemangioma. Sometimes, additional tests such as angiography or biopsy may be required.


In most cases, liver hemangioma does not require treatment and is monitored dynamically. In rare cases, if there are symptoms or a risk of tumor rupture, surgical removal of part of the liver may be necessary.


Since the exact causes of liver hemangioma are unknown, there are no specific prevention methods. Regular medical examinations and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can contribute to timely detection and control of this condition.


For the diagnosis and treatment of liver hemangioma, it is necessary to consult a gastroenterologist or hepatologist.
