Micro LMs are small extra lymphatic vessels. Since it is microcystic it is harder to treat since it is almost impossible to see with the naked eye. I have micro LM myself, in the pelvic region. If the insurance won't cover it you can ALWAYS try to appeal the decision. My family had to do this quite a few times, as they wouldn't cover my treatments from doctors out of network. We'd write a letter stating why we needed to see the other doctor and have always gotten it covered in the end. Feel free to ask me any questions if you have any others.
