Caption: Haemangioma on the skin of a 35-year-old female patient. A haemangioma is caused by an abnormal distribution of capillaries (small blood vessels), which become knotted and distended under the skin. This condition is sometimes referred to as a benign tumour of the blood vessels. Haemangiomas often appear on the skin as a type of birthmark (naevus). They do not usually require treatment unless they are starting to bleed or they grow above the eye and begin to obscure the vision. Hemangiomas can be removed by laser treatment, cryosurgery (destruction of the tissue by extreme cold), plastic surgery or radiotherapy.
