Need some advice regarding a nasal cavity hemangioma
I am a professional working in Delhi, and I have a 8-month daughter, who was born with a hemangioma in her left nasal cavity. We were initially asked to wait and watch, and monitor its growth. However, we have seen that it has grown along with her, though in a controlled manner. As a result, the left side of her nose has a swelled up appearance, with the mass slightly protruding from the left nostril. Her pediatrician prescribed cortisteroids in her seventh month. We tried it for 3 weeks after which it was tapered off, but made no difference to the size of the hemangioma. The next option would be beta blockers, per a discussion with the doctor, though we are yet to confirm the next steps during our upcoming visit. As for surgical intervention, we have been asked to wait till she is at least a year old.
I have read about many parents in this forum, who are positively dealing with this issue. Just wanted to get some direction on how exactly to approach this situation of mine, rather than wait and watch.
