Hepatic hemangioma Turkey

A hepatic hemangioma is a non-cancerous (benign) lump in the liver that is made up of an entanglement (a lymph node) hepatic vascularity, and affects up to 20% of the population.

Most cases of angioma of the livre are found on an imaging test for another condition. Thus, it is noticed with the appearance of symptoms of the disease in the body.

It can produce a lump in the liver, even if it is a benign lump. However, hepatocellular carcinoma causes cancer.

Symptoms of hepatic hemangioma

In most cases, a hepatic hemangioma does not cause any signs or symptoms. However, when the liver disease causes signs and symptoms, they can include:

  • Pain in the upper right abdomen
  • Feeling full after having a tiny quantity of food (early satiety)
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

Moreover, these symptoms are not limited to this condition and are often caused by something else, even in the case of a hemangioma, as it is often symptomless.

The causes of angioma of the livre

The main cause of hepatic hemangioma has not been determined. But according to doctors, hepatic hemangioma coincides with birth (a birth defect). On the other hand, hemangiomas in the liver usually form as a single, abnormal collection of blood vessels that are less than 1.5 inches (about 4 centimeters) wide. Sometimes, hepatic hemangiomas can be larger or more numerous. In rare cases, large hemangiomas can also occur in young children. This is because a hepatic hemangioma does not get bigger and does not cause any signs or symptoms in most people. But in a few people, it can get bigger, and cause symptoms that need treatment.

Risk factors for angioma of the liver

Factors that increase the likelihood of a diagnosis of hepatic hemangioma include:

  • Age: Hepatic hemangiomas occur at any age, but are more common in people between 30 and 50 years old.

  • Your gender: A hepatic hemangioma is more commonly diagnosed in females than males.
  • Pregnancy: Women who have been pregnant are more likely to be diagnosed with hemangioma of the liver than women who have never been pregnant. Estrogen, which increases during pregnancy, may play a role in the development of hepatic hemangioma.
  • Hormone replacement therapy: Women who use hormone replacement therapy to treat symptoms of menopause may be more likely to develop angioma of the liver than women who do not.

Complications of a hepatic hemangioma

Women who have been diagnosed with hepatic hemangioma face the possibility of complications if they become pregnant. However, it should be noted that estrogen, which is increased during pregnancy, causes an increase in the size of certain types of hepatic hemangioma. Often a hemangioma can cause signs and symptoms that require treatment, including pain in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen, abdominal distension, or also nausea. However, having a liver hemangioma does not mean that you cannot get pregnant. But discussing potential complications with your doctor can help you make the right decision that is suitable for your condition.

Medicines that affect the hormones in your body, such as birth control pills, can cause the tumor to grow and lead to complications. However, there is controversy about this. If you are considering this type of medication, during a consultation with the doctor; he will explain its benefits and risks to you.
