I was having some severe pain in my abdomen about a year and a half ago and while running the tests (ultrasound, ct etc) they discovered that I appear to have several hemangiomas on my liver. They assure me that it was nothing to worry about so I didn't. They did however decide to remove my gallbladder and that seemed to cure most of my pain.

Skip ahead to now, my husband has been having some discomfort in his groin area and had a small lump there, they told him he probably has a hernia. They did a ct test on him and said that he appears to have several hemangiomas on his liver.

Is this weird?? I have never heard of a hepatic hemangioma before they told me I had them and now he has several as well?? I did some research and the research said that only as many as 7% of people have them. Maybe I am just being paranoid but I really do find this strange. Any imput on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Tonilangley, hello and welcome!

I can certainly understand why you'd have questions. The best person to ask would be your doctors or a liver specialist, such as a hepatologist. They would have the medical records and expertise to be able to provide you with some answers.

Let us know what you find out,
