Vascular tumors are rare conditions that can present in a spectrum from benign to malignant (cancerous). Some of the more notable types of vascular tumors are described below.
Vascular anomalies are divided into two main groups: tumors and malformations. Vascular tumors are a large and complex group of lesions, especially for clinicians with none or little experience in this field. In the past, these lesions caused a great deal of confusion because many appear analogous to the naked eye.
Vascular anomalies can be broken down into two major categories: tumors and malformations. These clinical entities are extremely different, but often confused, as evidenced by the history and medical literature. A thorough medical history and physical exam is essential when it comes to defining any vascular anomaly.
