About Spindle Cell Hemangiomas

Spindle cell hemangiomas are non-cancerous tumors that look long and thin under the microscope. They usually form on or under the skin and can be quite painful. This type of vascular tumor can be painful and appear as red-brown or bluish lesions, usually on the arms or legs.


A biopsy can confirm the diagnosis, and they can also be confirmed visually. They tend to grow slowly and can be singular or multiple spindle cell hemangiomas.  

Treatments We Offer
