I think the location of the hemangioma definitely is a big factor. My other daughter's lip hemangioma was technically smaller but it was more complex due to the location. I thought for sure they would recommend treatment for my Rachael's hand from the look of it, but the specialist said he expected it to do fine on its own. Goes to show I'm not an expert! hahaha!
So it did totally go away on its own in the end...by pretty much 2 years of age. But the lip-not the same at all.
So that's why I think it is difficult to say, and usually the specialist will have the best info because they deal with them so regularly.
Good luck! Stay in touch!
Hers healed amazingly well, though it looked super uncomfortable as it puffed up
I just today noticed my youngest's spreads all around her anus, so now I'm very concerned in case it should start raising. Especially if there's risk of ulceration that would get infected easily.
My eldest's is still raised on her head, but it's completely flesh tone and she has so much hair you wouldn't notice it.
