Default hemangioma in foot

My 6 month old daughter was recently diagnosed with a capillary hemangioma in her foot. It was difficult to diagnose due to the location and the fact that it is under the skin. I just wanted to know if anyone has had similiar experiences, especially hemangiomas located in the foot. I have so many questions and feel that it is difficult to find answers since her condition differs greatly from the typical hemangioma.

Thanks for any input you have!

Default foot/hemangioma

My son who is now 22 was also diagnosed with a hemangioma in his foot when he was little and the diagnosis was incorrect. He had an AVM. I do feel like the delay in the diagnosis impeded his health.

You need to find a specialist in the field of Vascular medicine to find out treatment options. There are wonderful doctors and the internet is a great tool for research. At least, you will find others experiencing the circumstances as you and your child and learn options available to you.

I am available for questions, it needed. I will say a prayer for you and your child.

Thanks for responding! We have been told that her "h" could be a lymphatic malformation. She is almost a year old and we are still searching for answers. She had a biopsy done at 4 1/2 months. We are waiting for a 2nd MRI since the first one was done without contrast. Right now, we are having trouble finding shoes. Any advice there?
