Definitions of Cavernous hemangioma:
A vascular tumor preponderantly composed of large dilated blood vessels, often containing large amounts of blood, occurring in the skin, subcutaneously, or both, and also in many viscera, particularly the liver, spleen, pancreas, and sometimes the brain. The typical superficial lesions are bright to dark red in color; deep lesions have a blue color. A cavernous hemangioma in the skin extends more deeply than a capillary hemangioma and is less likely to regress spontaneously. (Dorland, 27th ed; from Stedman, 25th ed)

Cavernous hemangioma is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of
Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health

affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
