Default Suggestions and Insight

Hey to all,

I have a 2 1/2 year old that was born with both macrocysts and microcysts around his right ear and neck. Recently, they have grown causing some minor issues. We are being told that he will have to undergo sclerotherapy or surgery. Can anyone give me the pros and cons for both if you have experienced either for your little one? My husband and I are thinking surgery so our son only has to go through one procedure and can be a done deal for a while. Has anyone opted for the surgery? If so, how did your little one deal with a long, extensive surgery like this? Thank you all.
