Congenital Hemangiomas

Congenital hemangiomas are non-cancerous tumors made up of thickened skin and many thin-walled blood vessels. These blood vessels often have a high rate of blood flowing through them.  

They are present and fully formed at birth (congenital).  Some are diagnosed in utero. 

There is no known cause for congenital hemangiomas.
