Any experiences with sclerotherapy?
I am new here, I am 25 years old and have a venous malformation on my cheek since I am 13. up to now it's quite easy to hide, but I notice a constant slow growth. I am considering surgery now. I already had surgery on it when I was 16 (excision) but they failed to remove it completely and so it regrew. Now my doctor advises me to have sclerotherapy combined with excision. I am very scared to go through with this. So many insecurities: what if it's worse after surgery, etc.... How long will the treatment take, will it be painful, etc...
I also want the best doctor possible, but how do I find him?
I hope I get some feedback here
