Venous Malformation Or Cancer?

A patient came in with an enlarging chest wall mass, it could be vascular due to a vascular tumor or vascular malformation. To give a firm diagnosis the next step is to image that area. This mass did not enlarge or regress as an infantile hemangioma would at two years, and to behave as a typical venous malformation there would be growth. We usually can tell clinically, but sometimes we can tell with imaging.  Don’t let the skin stand between you and the diagnosis.  By imaging it was diagnosed as a venous malformation.
