The vast majority of cervical hemangiomas reported are in reproductive age women. In addition, these lesions express hormone receptors, indicating that their growth is at least in part due to sex hormone stimulation.
Although most lesions are symptomatic (mostly bleeding), the diagnosis is frequently unsuspected.
Cervical hemangiomas are benign with no recurrences or adverse outcomes reported to date.
Conservative treatments are usually successful, and spontaneous remission has been observed.
