Default 23 yr old female Vascular Malformation or Hemangioma?

I am a 23 yr old female and last year noticed something on the right side of my neck. It will expand when I hold my breath and breath out of my nose. I had an ENT diagnose it as a Hemangioma and an enlarged arterior jugular vein and told me I dont have to do anything about it. The problem is I've read that only infants have hemangiomas and this never even occured until I was 22. Now I'm not sure who to see to get an accurate diagnosis. If any adult who is reading this has dealt with this or has any info on this or know of any doctors in the Midwest that might be familiar with this, Please, let me know. The only info. I've found regarding this is for children and infants.
