Default Preemie born with 2 possibly 3 H's. Have you seen this one?

My son was born at 33 weeks and had these small hemangiomas on his neck. When he was about 6 weeks old, one of the superficial hemangioma darkened around the edges and feels deeper. Then a white spot came up on his head. After a couple weeks it turned into the lump seen in the pictures. Does this look like a deep hemangioma? We are going to a children's hospital Thursday to find out for sure, But our regular care doctor seems to think this is what it is. Any advice or opinions are appreciated !

Hmmm..I have seen hemangiomas shaped like that before but they had more color to them, so I don't know. I think so, but I don't know. It will be interesting to see what they say at the Children's Hospital. My children's hemangiomas were different so I don't have much experience with it, but I just wanted to wish you good luck. Keep us posted on what the doc says!

I think you emailed me today, but if you didn't, yes I do think that is a deep H. My daughters was compound so it had some red speckles on top, but the part under the skin looked just like that.

Question yep

They say yes, it is a deep hemangioma on his head. We are going to the Dermatologist at Texas Children's tomorrow. So far they've given us the "lets just watch it line." Should I push for something to be done now? Do the deep ones normally go away on their own?
