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

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 0.39 inches 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 1.96 inches sized hemangioma need follow up CT scan and more than 3.93 inches 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

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.
