Thanks for the query.

Hepatic hemagioma is a solitary lesion composed of dilated blood vessels.
Its often seen in healthy people as accidental finding.Hemangiomas are most often benign and do not require treatment.
The only time surgical removal may be necessary is if there are severe symptoms like pain,liver dysfunction etc that is deteriorating the patient's condition.

I don't believe that there is any natural remedy to control it as its a vascular malformation.If your father is well and healthy with no symptoms then active treatment isn't necessary.

But I do advise regular follow ups with his doctor.
