well, we had ours removed at 6 1/2 months, and it didnt grow back, although the incision was so tight that the doc ended up leaving a tiny bit of the H (he warned us that there might be residual H left post surgery) so as of now, she has a slightly raised smaller skin color bump, but compared to what WAS there, its fine with us, it hasnt gotten any bigger, and she's almost 1 year old, so for us, it never grew back, just the leftover H was a problem. We are seeing the surgeon next month and im going to ask him if it is at risk for growing or not...the only diff between this bump and her original one is this one is skin color, with a tinge of blue, and the other was bright red!
