Sinusoidal hemangioma is a type of soft tissue tumor in the skin, which gives no symptoms, but is noticed as a small bluish bump typically in the skin of the breast and limbs.[1] In men, it may be associated with breast growth.[1]

It is rare, generally occurs in middle-age adults, and females are affected more than males.[1]
