Cavernous hemangiomas are less common than capillary hemangiomas but involve similar age group (infancy and childhood) and locations (upper body). They are usually larger than capillary hemangiomas, less well-circumscribed, and usually require surgical treatment due to pressure effect on deeper structures. They contain large, dilated vessels lined by flattened endothelium. The vessels may be engorged with blood.
