I'm not sure how things work in Canada compared to the US but I think it would be helpful to see a specialist to see what options are offered for treatment-timilol? propanolol? You can also wait to see how much it grows over the next few weeks/months and take photos frequently...like maybe once a week to show any changes. I think this is helpful to show the doctors and also for you to see yourself. Since you are with her all the time sometimes it's harder to notice. Hopefully someone will chime in here from Canada and they might be able to give you some info specific to that. Try not to look at too many pictures online....they often show the most extreme cases...easy to say, hard to do! I used to do that all the time too and scare myself silly!!!! But most of the time our worries turn out to be much worse than the reality. Where in Canada are you located?
