Default Hemangioma on head-7weeks-advice please

My daughter's hemangioma was present at birth, but was flat. Since then it has become raised and increased in diameter. The pediatrician has said there is no treatment available unless it is by eyes, nose, or mouth. Yesterday I started looking online and am now very concerned. I had no idea how big they can grow. What should my next steps be? After looking at some other posts I feel like my daughter's is pretty large for just being 7 weeks old. Please help. I would love advice and support. I tried to load a pic, but it says it won't attach. The size is about 1".
