Does anyone's LO have a hemangioma? Did you do any treatment for it. My Madison has a large one on her neck and it is pushing up on her ear. The dermatologist wants to treat it with propranolol, a medication usually used for heart issues but now being used for hemangiomas. I am really worried about it. First she has to go get an MRI of it to check the vascular structures of it, than we go to a ENT to check to see if it's affecting her ear and throat, and then to a cardiologist that will monitor the medication. Just worried and was wondering if anyone has been there with their LO.

Jhett had a hemangioma near his eye and the ped monitored it for the first 18 months but it never changed so he didn't think we needed to take any action.

Sorry I am no help! Just saw you posted this several days ago and had no replies yet,and I hate when that happens, so just wanted to let you know you're not being ignored!
