Hi Lisa,
I know how hard it is to be at the beginning of the whole hemangioma journey. I was very worried and upset too. The anxiety of not knowing what was going to happen was really difficult for me. I remember it like it was yesterday. I'm not sure if lower lip hemangiomas sort of "behave" differently from upper lip ones, but if it were me I would see a specialist so it can be monitored more closely and then you can get an idea of all your options along the way. Our pedi was always pretty "anti-treatment" but we decided to treat it because it ulcerated. I think it was the right decision for us. Every case is different though. So that's why I think seeing a specialist is a good idea (especially with lips.) Glad you got to check out Faith's album. It's actually really neat for us to look back on it..she likes looking at it too! I'm sure others will chime in here with lower lip hemangiomas. Good luck! Keep us posted! This site has been a life line for me for the past 6 years and hopefully it will help you too!

Shannon
