Default New Here! Hemangioma on neck.

Hi, My daughter is 5 weeks old. She's #3 and my first to have a hemangioma. Hers is on her neck, so our ped is sending us to a ped derm. I'll post a picture tomorrow (she is asleep for the night). It's in the middle of her neck, and it's starting to get more round. It isn't raised yet. My first question is when will it begin to raise? I can't find anyone on the message board to have one on the neck. It makes me nervous because of her airway.

Hi and welcome!

When is your appointment with the pediatric derm? No one can really tell you when or if it will begin to raise. If you are concerned about her airway ... is she having any breathing difficulties at all now?
