Dianita. You likely do not have a true hemangioma. Unfortunately the term hemangioma is used incorrectly to describe all vascular lesions. True hemangiomas grow, are stable then go through involution. Vascular malformations grow with you and never go through involution and do get worse with hormonal changes.
