    hemangioma?

    I have had this 2-year onging battle with pain in the upper right side area. Recent MRI indicates a hemangioma has grown from 3.7cm to 4 cm.

    Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and purused treatment for a tumor of this size? My doctor is referring me to a hepatologist and has suggested that I will likely be encouraged to have it removed. I also have gallstones.

    Thank you

    Sounds like you also need the gb removed. Don't wait till it ruptures - that's potentially fatal. Two years of pain means things are getting serious.

    Gallstones should have nothing to do with the hemangioma; but you should definitely talk to a hepatologist and think about getting your GB out. Sounds like things are escalating- and getting your Gb out can be life saving!

    Good luck!
