Though the word hemangioma sounds scary, it is actually just a benign (noncancerous) cluster of blood vessels located anywhere on the body. Though they can occur at any age, they are most common with infants and young children. For most, they will grow for a short period of time and then stop growing or even shrink, even without treatment. However, it is important for you to visit a dermatologist because external hemangiomas often occur alongside internal ones that can be found on the liver, the brain, the respiratory organs, or even the various parts of the gastrointestinal system.
