Varicose Veins | Sclerotherapy | Venous Malformations | The Woodlands | Springs | Katy
Cavernous hemangiomas, also known as venous malformations are the most common symptomatic vascular malformations (birthmark). These common birthmarks usually become symptomatic in older children or young adults, with bluish skin discoloration, local swelling, and pain.
The characteristic physical finding of this vascular birthmark is a soft and easily compressible soft-tissue mass (or swelling) that is associated with bluish skin discoloration. Increasing engorgement with dependency is typical. These birthmarks can be small and localized or extensive and involve the entire extremity or body part.
