Anyone else's baby have a Hemangioma ?
   My 3 month old granddaughter developed a lump at the base of her neck Friday. We called her pediatrician and she diagnosed it over the phone as a swollen lymph node as she recently had a cold. By Monday she was swallowing really hard and having breathing issues. We took her in first thing Tues to the Dr. on call and he said it was not a lymph node but didn't know what is was, had two other Dr.s look at at it and the best they could guess was a deep Hemangioma but not sure. They sent her directly to hospital for an ultrasound and all they could say is that it is a Vascular tumor of some sort. We are now waiting to get scheduled for an MRI. Does anyone have any experience with these?

here is a link regarding Hermangiomas    parents.berkeley.edu>Reviews>Health & Medical    Almost all hemangiomas will undergo a long, slow regression, known as involution, without treatment. The end result of involution is potentially worse than the scarring that would occur with surgery. Thus, surgical intervention is commonly indicated only if the growth of the tumor is life threatening or highly problematic from a medical or psychosocial point of view. For example, tumor growths that affect the ability of the eye to see, the ear to hear, or the passage of air in and out of the lungs are frequently candidates for surgical treatment. Tumors that have ulcerated are also common candidates for surgical treatment. Surgery after involution can be used to remove remaining scar tissue.

Update on my granddaughter:
    She had her MRI last week and they do not think this growth is a Hemangioma. It is hyper vascular and now they believe it is some sort of malformation. They have forwarded all her tests to Primary Childrens and are being reviewed by their Radiologists and a ped ENT. We hopefully should know something by tomorrow.
