Hi there. My daughter had a very similar hemangioma, & like the other poster we had her hemangioma removed, but she was 2 when we had it done. I waited & waited for it to "go down" but it was not going anywhere. There was very faint hair growing out of it, but for what it's worth my daughter did not have much hair at the time. Dr. Levitin said that if we did not remove it that there would be extra skin/fatty tissue in it's place if it did somewhat go away on it's own. We traveled from Kansas to NY for the surgery, worth every penny.
