What is the treatment for haemangioma on liver?
Q: I am a 51 years old man has been suffering from acidity, bloating and irritable bowel syndrome for the last 8 years. Recently I have been told that I have haemangioma on liver of about 1.5 cm x 1.5 cm. What is it? Is it dangerous? What is the treatment for the same?
A:I note that you have two issues. One is about your symptoms of acidity & bloating. This is most likely due to acid-peptic disease. In addition you mention that you have a haemangioma of liver (1.5 x 1.5 cm). You need not worry for the haemangioma. Certainly, it is not the cause of your symptoms. A small haemangioma needs to be followed up by serial imaging (6 months to 1 year interval), and no specific treatment is necessary. For your acidity related symptoms, you may need an upper GI Endoscopy under the care of a Gastroenterologist.
