Vascular Tumors Symptoms - Oren Zarif - Vascular Tumors


A comprehensive history plays a critical role in the diagnosis of vascular tumors. Your medical history can help your doctor determine the best imaging modality and the next appropriate step. Most vascular lesions can be evaluated with ultrasound and/or magnetic resonance imaging. Diagnostic imaging is essential to determine the extent of the lesion and its structural involvement. The following symptoms may be a sign of vascular tumors:

Symptoms of vascular tumors vary widely. A typical symptom is a mass in the skin. In some cases, it may be in the lungs, heart, or liver. Rarely, it may also occur in the bones or other tissues. A physician may want to consider surgical treatment for a vascular tumor if it starts to spread. A biopsy may be necessary to ensure the tumor is benign or malignant.

Some vascular tumors are benign and can occur anywhere on the body. They may appear as a firm raised lump or blood blister that's similar in color to the skin. Some may bleed, ulcerate, or collapse. Other symptoms of vascular tumors include pale gums, pain, and swelling. Vascular tumors often require immediate medical treatment if they are suspected. If they cause bleeding, a biopsy can help you diagnose them properly.

A patient with an atheroma may experience painful ulceration, as well as retraction of skin pores. Wrinkled skin over a tumor in the early stages may be a sign of the growth of the tumor. The tumor is growing toward the skin. As it grows, it will begin sprouting connective tissue ligaments and fatty tissue. As the tumor grows, it will cause the skin to retract, a characteristic known as "umbilization."

Hemangiomas are the most common type of vascular tumor in children. These are non-cancerous tumors and usually appear as flat or raised masses. These lesions are warm to the touch and may indicate that there is a underlying medical issue. In some cases, they may be associated with other symptoms, like diabetes, cancer, or other illnesses. They may be benign or cancerous and may look like a birthmark.

Another symptom of a VM is sudden pain. This can be due to blood clots that have formed in the VM. These clots will block the blood flow to the lesion, causing pain and inflammation. These areas may even become infected, requiring antibiotic treatment. However, this is rare. If you notice any of these symptoms, consult with your doctor as soon as possible.

There are several types of vascular tumors. Infantile hemangiomas are the most common type. Other types are rare and have unique natural history, clinical prognosis, and treatment options. While the vast majority of vascular tumors are benign, further imaging and tissue diagnosis may be necessary. It is important for clinicians to recognize the high-risk features of different vascular tumors, including anatomic, morphologic, and co-existing congenital anomalies.

Kaposiform hemangioendotheliomas are rare and usually involve the extremities. They commonly involve the extremities, with less frequent involvement of the trunk and head and neck. The most common lesion of Kaposiform hemangioendotheliomas is a rapidly expanding firm violaceous plaque in the skin. Infiltrating deep soft tissue, they may be found in visceral organs. These tumors may also cause symptoms such as lymphangiomatosis.

The most common benign vascular tumor in infants is the infantile hemangioma. They occur in approximately 4% to 5% of infants and are not present at birth. They usually start to multiply during the first three to six weeks of life, then stabilize over the next several years. Infantile hemangiomas occur more commonly in premature infants and those who are multiple gestational. They are associated with maternal age and pre-eclampsia.
