My 4-year-old daughter has a large hemangioma on her cheek. I understand that it is not dangerous but I do not want her to have to listen to kids calling her names. She has heard enough name-calling in her four short years. When do you suggest that we get this removed? Is this usually an outpatient procedure?
The general rule is that these go away 10% per year for the first 10 years of life. At that point it may be small enough to treat with a dye laser.
