Giant Hemangioma of Liver-Triple Phase CT

Cavernous hemangioma is the most common benign hepatic tumor. It typically occurs in women. Lesions measuring more than 4 cm in diameter are known as "giant hemangiomas" and often cause symptoms such as vague abdominal distention and pain. The constellation of giant hemangioma, thrombocytopenia, and localized consumption coagulopathy is known as the Kasabach–Merritt syndrome. This is a case of 40 year old female with giant hemangioma of liver with triple phase CT showing classical centripetal fill-in.

How large was this particular tumor? Mine was 12.6x10.5 cm as of Dec 8, 2012. Now it is causing constant pain and pressure. I feel full after a modest meal.
