Default Re:Daughter has a hemangioma on lip and in mouth. I need advice!

I am an adult that has lived with any compound hemangioma of the lower lip and tongue for 36 years. I cannot stress enough the importance of seeing someone willing to work on the malformation NOW. I did not see the "correct" physician until I was 12 and it was too late to eliminate the tumors completely.

I see a plastic surgeon who has specialties in vascular and facial surgery.

Although mine continues to grow, he has changed my life.

May I suggest looking for a pediatric plastic surgeon (they do exist) who specializes in vascular surgery. behind their name. Mine is in Louisville, Kentucky, a little far from you but I'll give you his name anyway: Dr. Gerald Verdi, 502 895-5555--www.drverdi.com.

Good Luck
