It could be a vascular malformation, yes. Without something to give it some scale, it's hard to tell what size it is.
Where are you located? It's best that you see a specialist.
You could go to http://birthmark.org/experts.php
. I would write to Dr. Levitin there and send him that picture.
I said that its 9 mm / 5.5 mm thats like 0.9 cm by 0.55 cm. Its located on the right side of my belly 15 cm from it.
