how small should two thoracic hemangiomas be to consider treatment? What are the risk of leaving them if you had a coagulation disorder like von willebrand?

Hi Anon,

Are you currently on medication for Von Willebrand? If so, this should prevent any bleeding from occurring.

Your doctor will determine whether or not your hemangiomas are too small to treat, if he has already told you that they are small it is likely that they are tiny. If you want to know their exact size, your doctor is the best person to ask.

Here's a great article on Thoracic Hemangiomas for you to read:
