General Surgeon 's  Response
Hi and welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thank you for your query. I am Dr. Rommstein, I understand your concerns and I will try to help you as much as I can.
Hemagioma should be treated if it is larger than 10cm or there are symptoms present. Otherwise, it should not be surgically removed since there is no risk of complications. YOur high ALP may be caused by hemagioma if it presses biliary duct but also some other causes of obstuction should be ruled out with ct scan or biligraphy.

I hope I have answered you query. If you have any further questions you can contact us in every time.
Kindly regards. Wish you a good health.
