Hello Maya,

Thank you so much for giving me and my wife hope. When my son was 4 weeks old, we saw a red dot at the tip of his nose which we thought were baby acne since it appeared around the same time. He is now 7 weeks old and we were told of the shocking news by our pediatrician last week that he has hemangioma. It literally felt like someone knocked the wind out of me when I googled and found out what it was.

Can anyone suggest whether we should wait for the hem. to stop growing before doing the surgery or should we do it before it grows bigger and bigger?

thanks..
