Actually, I just reread your post again and noticed that your daughter is 2 years old and that you just saw the nodule 3 months ago. I'm not an expert, but there's a decent chance that it's not a hemangioma since hemangiomas usually grow shortly after birth and then start to fade or involute beginning around age 1. That's not to say that it 100% isn't but that's why I would definitely recommend you see a hemangioma specialist and get some questions answered and see if they can help you figure out exactly what it is for sure.
