New too
Hi, my name is Tanya. I have an 8 month old son who was diagnosed with a hemangioma when he was around 12 weeks old. He is now 8 months old and we are still waiting to see.... His hemangioma is in his neck. I have not seen anyone with a hemangioma present like his.

Hi and welcome!

If you haven't already (but I think I've seen your name in the database already), write to an expert at

Tell me where you're located. We'd like to be able to recommend a specialist.

Eight months is a fun age, though, isn't it? Has he started doing that teeter totter walking yet? That's sooo cute!!
