Brief Answer:
yes it can .

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.

A hepatic hemangioma is a noncancerous tumor in the liver that's made up of a tangle of blood vessels. Liver hemangiomas typically don't cause symptoms however as they occupy space inside liver they may cause pressure atrophy of surrounding tissue which maycause mild to moderate derangement of liver functions however this is transient and liver recovers itself very soon.
Secondly only three times elevation of liver function is signifgicant.

Hope i was helpful.
Thanks!

I was diagnosed with a DVT and then a few days later they found I had multiple Pulmonary Embolisms. I have had trouble breathing for a couple of years and it continues to get worse. Lately I feel very bloated after eating or drinking just a small amount and worsening acid reflux. An upper GI showed no GERD. A barium x-ray showed some reflux. I am currently on Warfarin. Today I was told that the CT scan also showed a hepatic hemangioma. It is possible that the Hepatic Hemangioma is pressing on my lungs (causing shortness of breath) and on my stomach (causing the fullness and bloating)?

Hi
A few small liver haemangiomas were found incidentally on an ultrasound scan a couple of years ago. I have no pain or anything. Recent routine blood tests shows my ALT to be 65. In the past it has varied from 27 to 47 to 36 and now 65. is this anything to worry about. My other LFT are normal (bilirubin,alk phos & albumin). My cholesterol is a little high at 5.9.??
