Exclamation 7 Year Old with Hemangioma Under Arm

Good Day All,

Is there anyone that can assist, my seven year old daughter has a large hemangioma birth mark under her left arm, close to the arm pit. It is increasing in size, and bleeds occasionally. Is there a specialist in Cape Town that does removal of these birth marks?

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Nikita Leigh.

Hi and welcome!

Was your daughter born with this or is this something that has come up recently? Generally, hemangioma are present at birth and grow for the first year or so and then stop growing or even decrease. The reason I'm asking is that it sounds like it might have been misdiagnosed and treatments for different types of birthmarks are different.
