She's having it removed on Tuesday, 8/7 so they will be biopsying it then. Her derm, Moise Levy, will be viewing it during surgery and then sending it off to a lab to determine exactly what it is. The official word from him is that, based on the sonogram, there is arterial and venous flow in and out of it, and it does in fact appear to be a hemangioma but with her age and history the results are atypical. I haven't been on this site in a while and I'm not sure where I go to consult the experts. Is it just through the "ask an expert" link under the resources tab?
