This are discovered during a test or procedure for some other condition.

Until recently, the mainstay of treatment was oral corticosteroid therapy, but there are now alternative treatments. A randomized trial showed that the beta-blocker propranolol reduced severe hemangiomas in infants. The topically applied beta blocker solution/gel Timolol is being trialed for small facial hemangiomas that do not justify systemic treatment. Other treatments include interferon or vincristine. They may be considered if first-line therapy fails.Surgical removal is sometimes indicated, particularly if there has been delay in commencing treatment and structural changes have become irreversible.
liver hemangioma, 41 (72%) were women and 32 (56%) had GHH. Liver hemangioma median size was 4.49cm. In regard to the patients with GHH, 31.2% were asymptomatic and when symptoms presented, pain was the most common. Both symptoms and oral contraceptive exposure were more common in the GHH patients. Nine patients with GHH underwent surgery: 2 open biopsies due to diagnostic uncertainty, one enucleation, and 6 resections. GHHs are more prevalent in women and when symptomatic, pain is the most frequent complaint. Oral contraceptive use is most likely more of a risk factor for GHH than for conventional hemangioma, but this association needs to be studied further.
