Cavernous Hemangioma at 10x Magnification
Hemangiomas often do not pose any health problems, but they are sometimes prone to ulceration and bleeding. Cavernous hemangiomas, which are more likely to receive injury due to their elevated form, should be treated with special care in order that such events are avoided. If not handled appropriately, an ulcerated hemangioma may develop a secondary infection. Depending on where the growth is located, a hemangioma can also interfere with various functions of the body. For instance, cavernous hemangiomas located around the eye or on the eyelid sometimes inhibit vision.
