Vascular Malformations on Hand. Vascular malformations is a general term for irregularities in vein, arteries and lymph vessels. Underlying vessels did not develop properly, so they are present at birth but not always apparent.  While this photo shows them on the hand, they can be found anywhere in the body. They can also grow and become painful, and new lesions may appear.
