Hi Cendy99. I have a hemangioma too. In fact one of my doctors told me he has one too. they are fairly common. Most people don't know they have them, they are something that is found on routine ultrasound. Mine was discovered in 2015 and they made me go back for ultrasounds every 6 months for 4-5 times just to make sure it's stable. they can grow, shrink, or stay the same. they are not cancerous and do not turn cancerous. Don't freak out, they are not uncommon. When my doctor called me to tell me the news that they found this on my ultrasound he said "people have these and live to 90 years old." Best wishes to you. If that's all it is, you'll be fine.

also if they told you it was small, that's really good. as I understand it people can have them up to 10cm and that's not good because they are very vascular - they have a large blood supply. so when people have them that large they tell them not to do contact sports incase it ruptures. But if yours is small which I think they would categorize that as less than a centimeter, then just watch it, and follow your doctors advice. they scan it a few times and then they leave it alone.
