I would highly recommend the Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota as a possible place to come in US. You might also need to be tested for Von Hippel Lindau syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes multiple hemangiomas throughout the body, some without symptoms. The surgery is necessary with a hemangioma that large. If you don't get it removed, you could have severe or fatal bleeding if you had trauma from an accident for example. There are many good surgery centers in US, and a combination of liver and vascular surgeon on your case would be most helpful.

Are you currently in Egypt or elsewhere? The easiest way to get info is on the internet. The Mayo clinic is world renowned for their excellent physicians and care, including surgeries on rare, complex or difficult cases. If you are able to travel, the clinic helps you get all the arrangements made for you and family. There are many hotels within walking distance. From the time you contact them to when you arrive is usually 3-5 weeks. They help patients with travel arrangements, hotel arrangements, and gather and evaluate all your medical records, tests, and consult with each other about the plan for your care (subject to your approval of course). I hope this helps.
