Our pediatrician said the same thing regarding our daughters H on the lip.. he said hes never seen it in such a place. Last time we were there he told us that he was at a conference/lecture and the subject about H came up and apparently they are all taught to tell there patients to use the wait and see approach.. I told him that only if the pediatricians were trained better about Hemangiomas then we wouldnt have waited until the H started growing. Apparently if u catch it as soon as it comes out and u take ur child to have at least 2 lasers that the chances of it to grow are less.. He said from now on if he ever has a patient with a facial H he will reccomend them to a specialist right away.

It's really sad that hemangiomas are not taken serious by pediatricians only if they were............
