Default Me too

I am a 45 year old female and discovered my 4cm hemangioma 4 years ago. Although I am asymptomatic, I remind myself that mine is exposed (hanging off the bottom of my liver). There is no protection from my rib cage...as I was told by the person giving me an ultrasound 2 years later after my CT.

Although, I have read every article, and also question the orgin of how I developed this, is anyone else concerned with rupture? I had fallen over the bathtub (while cleaning) and hit the shower railing...luckily my thigh received the bulk of the impact, which I still have an indentation after 3 years. I'm wondering what would have happened had I fallen over the area with the hemangioma.

Does anyone else share this concern?
