16 yr old daughter diagnosed with hemangioma
I am new to the forum. My daughter was just diagnosed with a hemangioma in the muscles of her pelvis. She had an MRI due to pelvic and back pain.They first had to rule out a soft tissue malignancy such as sarcoma. Then,thought it was a venous malformation. Now they're saying it's a hemangioma in the obturator muscle, although it doesn't have some of the typical characteristics. I'm confused and worried. They say the treatment for this is to sclerose it with alcohol, but there are some bad side effects. I get the impression that they're not even sure of the diagnosis, although they say that the Fine Needle Aspiration biopsy confirmed it. Does anyone have any experience like this? Can you have a hemangioma that only shows up on a scan?
