Default Abdominal hemangio

My vet found a grapefruit-sized tumor in my 10-year-old male's abdomen that she believes is a form of hemangio. It couldn't be aspirated so we don't know yet if it's benign or malignant but it is wrapped around a major vessel, which makes things more difficult. Just wondering if anyone has experience with this type of tumor in this location? We're doing chest X-rays to make sure that it hasn't spread and I'm hoping that they'll be able to do a minimally invasive biopsy. Any insight is appreciated.
