Default Liver hemangioma/ venus malformation?

thank you so much for your reply.... ive been worried about it ever since i was told i had one ( they were looking for gallstones) i dont have gallstones but this hemangioma instead. what was confusing to me was, how did it get there? has it been there since birth ? will it grow ? these are the questions i need answers to, but my doctor didnt seem to know what to say other than i could have it taken out if i wanted but that was over doing it. i just dont know if this is something i should be worried about or not. is it common ? can you have this for ever with no danger to your health ? < sigh > mine is the size of a marble he said. pretty small i guess, but it still worries me.

thanks for understanding
