Default Hemangioma on upper lip

Hi,

I am new to this forum and just hoping to get some advice/support/opinions. My 14 month old son has a hemangioma on his upper lip, about the size of a nickel in diameter.... and pretty thick, he looks like he just has a big lip

Well, my husband and I are ready to seek out surgical removal because he is a typical boy and has already busted it TWICE by falling during play... we don't want him to end up hurting it to a point where we have to have emergency surgery or something... and we are tired of worrying while he plays.

Has anyone here had their child's hemangioma removed?? (lip hemangiomas preferebly...)

Hi and welcome!

Lots of people here have gone that route and they will post soon.

I didn't want you to have to wait for a response, but have no advice. Have you chosen a physician yet?

Missy

Hi! My daughter has an upper lip hemangioma. She is 8 years old now and has just a trace of it left. She was on oral steroids at first and then had surgery when she was 5, and then 2 laser treatments. The best way to explain our journey is to take a look at her album:

Have you been seeing a specialist already? Do you have any pictures to share?
