Ayurvedic Treatment of Liver Hemangioma through Herbal Remedies
Liver hemangioma is a medical term for a benign (non-cancerous) lump or mass in the liver. The lump, usually harmless, is made up of intertwined blood vessels which are fed by the hepatic (liver) artery. A liver hemangioma usually gets diagnosed in affected patients when they undergo a medical test or surgical procedure for some other health condition. In most cases, a small hemangioma does not require any treatment because it does not grow, but a big hemangioma may necessitate surgery. Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company offers some beneficial herbal products for managing liver hemangioma in a natural manner.
Liver Hemangioma: Overview
Liver hemangioma is a medical condition that is characterized by the formation of a hemangioma (a non-cancerous lump) in the liver. In people affected by this condition, an abnormal collection of blood vessels forms a benign mass (lump) in the liver. This lump comprises tangled blood vessels that depend on the hepatic artery for blood supply.
Liver hemangioma is a non-cancerous condition which neither develops into liver cancer nor spreads from the liver to other parts of the body. The size of the hemangioma usually measures approximately 4 cm across. Such a small, non-malignant mass does not need any specific treatment because it does not cause any pain or discomfort. However, some patients of Liver hemangioma may develop a big lump which may require timely treatment, so that it does not rupture and cause complications that can adversely affect the functioning of the liver. Liver hemangioma is mostly diagnosed in affected individuals during the age between 30 and 50 years. The risk of the development of a Liver hemangioma is higher in women as compared to men. There are some other medical terms for Liver hemangioma. The condition is also referred to as Cavernous hemangioma or Hepatic hemangioma.
Liver hemangioma: Causes
The exact cause that can lead to the formation of a hemangioma in the liver is not known. Nonetheless, doctors are of the opinion that liver hemangioma is apparently a congenital (by birth) condition, although it can also develop later in life. In addition, it is also believed that, in some cases, the condition is genetic or hereditary (that is, the condition seemingly runs in the family).
Liver hemangioma: Symptoms
A small-sized liver hemangioma generally does not cause any symptoms. But people affected by a big-sized hemangioma may experience the following symptoms:
- Abdominal discomfort
- Pain in the upper right abdomen
- Poor appetite
- Sense of fullness even after eating small meals
Liver hemangioma: Treatment
The treatment of Liver hemangioma can involve various options, depending on the size and location of the hemangioma. Some of the treatment options include surgery for removal of the hemangioma, surgery for removing a portion of the liver, surgical procedure for blocking the flow of blood to the hemangioma, radiation therapy, and liver transplant surgery.
