Hi doctor,

Kindly go through the CT scan report, which shows any lesions or evidence of liver hemangioma. Please clarify it. Also, please advice how serious it is.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, these lesions are consistent with a hemangioma. Generally in liver, symptoms due to hemangioma are directly proportional to the size of hemangioma. For such small hemangioma less than 1 cm without any symptoms, nothing must be done.
  • There is no risk of formation of cancer in this hemangioma. Sometimes, they can be in liver throughout the life without any symptoms.
  • Symptoms in hemangioma depend on the size and the location of the tumor. More than 5 cm sized hemangioma need follow up CT scan and more than 10 cm sized one need surgery to remove.
  • Hemangioma in the liver itself is asymptomatic, but larger sized hemangioma compress nearby structures and this causes development of symptoms based on which adjoining organ is being compressed.
  • For such a small sized hemangioma nothing is required further.

Thank you doctor,

What is your opinion about gall bladder and urinary bladder distension?



Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • They are normal findings. Gall bladder was distended because this CT scan was done in fasting phase. This is not an abnormality.
  • Urinary bladder distension without any stone or any abnormality is normal acceptable finding.
