My DD has a hemangioma on her cheek, but is lucky that is is flat and never grew. She is two now. When she is closr to starting kindergarten, we will have it lasered. A friend of mine had a daughter with a huge one on the tip of her nose. They went through several surgeries and now you can't tell it was ever there. I recommend finding a specialist asap. My friend started a foundation and she might be able to help you find a good doc. It is called Share a Smile. I don't have the web address handy, but you could probably find it pretty easily if you did a search. The earlier you handle these things, the better the results. Good luck!

Strawberry Hemangioma

Postby lauchlan » Wed Sep 08, 2004 05:48 am

My daughter has a strawberry hemangioma on the back of her head. It's about the size of a tennis ball and is ulcerating. We've been seeing a specialist and is being treated with steroids to prevent it from growing any further. However, it causes her a lot of pain and it bleeds a lot.

I guess I'm just looking to see if any other preemie parents out there have had to deal with this and for how long???
