my daughter, 6 weeks, was diagnosed by our pediatrician this week with two deep hemangiomas, a larger one on her back/side which is raised with slight redness and one on her labia about the size of a marble with no redness. she also has a small spot, a couple pencil tips in size, on the tip of her tongue and another small spot on her neck.
do all deep hemangiomas start out without redness, they become redder as they grow?
I have a LARGE deep and superficial hemagioma on my entire left side of my back and left side. I am now 27 years old and I have never noticed a change in color. It is blue in color with little red hemagioma bumps on top of the already blue-ish skin- I have obviouly had it my entire life and wish there was something i could do to get rid of it.
Hello, I would suspect that you do not have a true hemangioma, likely a different vascular malformation (although it is a common term used to classify many vascular lesions...but simple isn't correct term)..
If you would like to email me, I might be able to help get you a proper diagnosis and options.
