Default Advice - H on breast

Hi, my 8 month old has had a strawberry H about 1cm below her nipple. underneath it is lumpy, with one main lump about 1cm diameter and it has a bruised appearance. We had an ultrasound and the sonographer said that the appearance of the lumps on the scan was unusual and he hadn't seen it before. Should I be worried? our apt isn't for 3 weeks. what could this be??
thanks

I am no expert, but it almost sounds like a cavernous H is under the strawberry H, like my granddaughter's. Someone else here would know more about that tho. Please keep us updated on your baby.
HUGS,
Sara Beth

Hemangiomas can also be deep under the skin... what you describe sounds like a compound hemangioma (both deep (cavernous) and superficial). Is the h. still growing?

thanks.
i think it is still growing?? I had noticed a growth phase a few weeks ago. But now I am not sure it is still growing..it is hard to tell.
We will be getting the ultrasound results late in the week.

Thank you very much. Will do. The strawberry mark itself is tiny, barely noticeable but the lump underneath is much bigger, i noticed on the ultrasound that the deep H had multiple lumps the largest being about 1.2 cm in diameter.
thanks again

Are they going to biopsy it or assume it is a hemangioma?...very likely.. One suggestion is to contact Dr. Martin Mihm with the report.

Default results are in

scan results show "mixed vascular malformation" predominantly capillary. the hypoechoicc areas of of uncertain significance - lymphatic or reflecting areas of focal haematoma. they do not contain internal vascularity.
We have been referred to specialist.
Any idea what sort of treatment would be recommended? It is of no cosmetic concern as the strawberry aspect is tiny - it is more internal.

Just updating anybody who is interested in my daughter's progress. The hemangioma seems to have stayed the same size over the past few months. We are awaiting an appointment at a vascular birthmark specialist clinic. We have also sent details to Dr Waner for opinion on the kind and generous suggestion of Corinne...thanks so much! So no change and nothing really to report. Just thought I would add something as I am really interested in reading updates of other people so thought I should do the same.
