Hi!
Well, liver hemangiomas are benign or non cancerous lesions. They are often detected during tests done for other reasons (like in your case). Usually this is treated with embolization (blocking the blood vessel feeding this hemangioma) or by tying or ligating the blood vessel. Hence, the doctor may have mentioned that it is treatable with surgery. Very small hemangiomas and hemangiomas not affecting the liver function or causing anemia are usually left as such.  Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
