Does The Hemangioma In The Sclera Need To Be Operated On?
Does the hemangioma in the sclera need to be operated on?
Hello Bella, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Hemangiomas are benign tumors caused by abnormal growths in blood vessels. Hemangiomas can appear anywhere, but generally appear on the skin. Hemangiomas usually appear during childhood.
Responding to your question about hemangiomas in the sclera, I think you need to know the anatomy of the eye first. I think it's very rare to find a hemangioma in the eye sclera. However, it helps you to see an ophthalmologist first to ascertain the condition. If this is indeed the case, the management of hemangiomas is the same even though the place is different.
There is no need to do any action on the hemangioma. Hemangiomas will disappear on their own as a child ages. In an enlarged hemangioma will cause symptoms, and treatment will be in accordance with these symptoms. Operative action will only be done if the hemangioma enlarges rapidly.
Right now what you can do is:
Verify the abnormality again. Observation of abnormalities experienced. Avoid prying / or pricking the hemangiomas. If the complaint is burdensome, contact your doctor. That's all the answers I can give, thank you very much :)
