Default Hemangioma on tongue

Prior to first discovering your web site i was laying in bed trying to imagine a life without a purple bump on my tongue. Many hours later still in visioning this it came to 3:30 in the morning. I decided to take action and research online a "mangeoma" on the tongue. To no surprise nothing came up. At this point I'm thinking I may be the only one. Until I discovered that "spelling it out" is only useful to a 3rd grader. Now knowing that what I had was a "Hemangioma" things began looking brighter. I've had this problem since birth, and for the past 18 years I have adapted to this "thing" on my tongue. By talking without opening my mouth too wide, never sticking my tongue out for pictures, and avoiding heavy kissing. I had managed to have a minimum amount of people being aware of my difformity. It was until that one person finds out that has no soul for you to truly realize your not like everybody else. Names like "testicle tounge" began circling my school. I would spend nights in tears wondering "why me?" Why am I the one out of billions to have this problem? There really is no explanation for why one can not be what is considered normal. I might consider myself lucky that I am a healthy girl and have led what is considered a normal life. But I am not happy. I wish getting rid of this problem on my tongue could be as easy as my imaginations. Like coming across a genie bottle and having three wishes. Of course I would wish for health for my family and a sum of money. But above all would be for a normal, lump less, pink tongue. My family doesn't have a lot of money to play around with but if found a way to rid of my bump they would bend. If anybody has heard of treatments or somebody I could talk to or anything for hemangioma on the tongue please let me know. There is no such thing as distance at this point in my life, I am willing to travel the world. Thank you.
