My daughter is three and she has this. The hemangioma started when she was a few weeks old and grew till she was about 10 months. It began to recede and has continued to do so. At least half of the redness is now gone. She is 3 1/2 now. There is a little bit of excess tissue so the affected breast and nipple is puffier than the other one. Both nipples are still inverted.

We were taking the "wait and see" approach.

Do you think there is anything that can be done at this stage to prevent problems in the future? Is there anyone I can consult with about this?
