Default What Kind of Birthmark is this?

Hi, I was born with this bluish-green birthmark. It started out tiny but continue to grow as I grew. And now it has grown pass my collar bone. My birthmark also started out flat and after having laser surgery (which failed) my birthmark has become raised and bulges out. Whenever I lay on my stomach this fluid like stuff rushes forward and becomes painful and makes my birthmark bulge out even more. Over the years I have seen countless doctors and almost all of them have said, "Wow I've never seen a birthmark like that before, I don't what kind it is."
I was hoping someone on here could help me out. Any information would be so helpful and much appreciated

It somewhat looks like a slow flow vascular malformation (venous malformation). IMO if you want a proper diagnosis you could try to see a specialist in vascular malformations.
