Welcome Angela! I totally know what you are going through!! My daughter has a h on her scalp that grew very rapidly. She is now 4 months old and it is the size of a tangerine!! She was put under at 3 months for steroid injection and pulse dye laser--this just slowed the growth. The doctor did not want to do anything else so, we contacted Dr Levitin. We just had a phone consult and he is recommending surgical removal at 8-9 months. My advice to you is to get it treated asap whether it be steroid injections or surgical removal-hemangiomas are soo unpredictable and can grow sooo rapidly, you just never know!!
