Is there any medicines (herbal or alopathy) to shrink the hemangioma ?

I am 30 year old female. married 2 years ago. planning for child. went for master health checkup. to my distress heard from my doctor that i have liver hemangioma which is 4.8 X 5 cms on the segment 7 of my liver. I didnt have any symptoms except back pain(that is becoz of my weight, my doctor told me so). But i have acidity problem for more than 6 years. Before 2 years when i had ultrasound for stomach problem they found that i had pre-pyloric ulcer and i have taken medicines for the same. But at that time there was no hemangioma on my liver. I have family problems and so have much stress. my question is within 2 years how did i get this much big (5 cms)hemangioma?
Also will it grow if i am pregnant? also is there any medicines (herbal or alopathy) to shrink the hemangioma?

Hi. Welcome To HealthcareMagic

Hemangiomas occur at any time. Pregnancy and estrogen-based medications can cause cavernous hemangiomas to grow. But the growth is very slow. Many hemangiomas are asymptomatic. They do not need treatment. Surgery is required if you have and bleeding. Right now you can check the size of it every 6 mo.
