Haemangioma - Symptom, Treatment and cause of Haemangioma


Haemangioma Description

(Angioma)

Localised over growth of arteries and veins.

Haemangioma Cause

Blood vessels in the skin, intestine, spinal cord, brain or inside other organs may sometimes dilate and overdevelop dramatically to form a small red lump.

Haemangioma Symptom

Red lump that blanches on pressure.

Investigation

None necessary in the skin. Internal haemangiomas may be detected by angiography (injecting dye into a blood vessel and taking an X-ray), CT or MRI scans, gastroscopy or colonoscopy.

Haemangioma Treatment

Surgical removal if cosmetically unacceptable or causing symptoms.

Complications

May bleed dramatically if injured, and in the gut be responsible for steady blood loss and anaemia. May put pressure on nerves (eg. in spine) to cause pain or loss of nerve function.

Prognosis of Haemangioma

Usually harmless, but annoying. Cured by removal.
