This is Dr. David

it is ok to only monitor benign hemangiomas in the liver once very 1-2 years.

they are benign and don't grow

don't let your anxiety get out of control with worry about this liver hemangioma

I am a cancer doctor

so I know about hemangiomas.

these are very commonly seen in the liver and spleen.

Why i have to monitor it unless it is benign ?
Or just to watch it's size ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.
it is just to monitor its size
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Your words are like what my Dr said .
He told me that if we are going to monitor it just for the size but he told me to forget it forever & don't think about it again as if it is something malignant for sure through a year will gonna change be aggressive .

No i am not afraid from turning to malignant.
He told me that if it was malignant throught the past year for sure it will be very clear in my last ultrasound scan done last month.
