Default New here. hemangioma on sons tongue

Hi. I am Teri. My son Josh is 9. He has a quite large/deep hemangioma on his tongue (into the back of his throat). We have monitored it up until now. It seems to be growing. Went in yesterday for another MRI and the Dr. wants to discuss laser treatment. Has anyone dealt with or seen hemangioma on the tongue? Does laser surgery seem to work in shrinking hemangiomas? It is inside his mouth so my main concern is not cosmetic. If it doesn't go completely away, we are ok with that (i guess). My concern is physical problems (breathing, eating, etc.). Just don't want to see it grow anymore. Anybody have advise? Thank You so much
