What is a hemangioma on liver?
A hemangioma is a benign tumour of the endotheial cells that line blood vessels. They do not usually cause any problems. The liver has a very large reserve functional mass, and there should therefore not be any problems with a hemangioma on the liver. However, they can occasionally ulcerate and bleed.
