I have a 3 month old baby and I found a lump underneath her…

Customer Question
I have a 3 month...
I have a 3 month old baby and I found a lump underneath her chin a few weeks ago. It is bruised and is very veiny. I was concerned so I called her doctor and brought her in. He kind of made me feel stupid for bringing her in and said it was just a bruise and that it would go away on it's own, but ithasn't. A week passed by and I noticed that the veins had gotten darker so I took her to a different pediatrician at an urgent care and he said that it is more than just a bruise and referred us to a dermatologist. Well, the soonest I could get her into a dermatologist is 3 weeks out so I scheduled the appointment, but I am still very worried so I would feel better if I could just talk to someone about it to maybe ease my mind a bit while I wait for her appointment...

I am very concerned and want to know what this is. She is breastfed exclusively and has doubled her weight since birth.

No we don't that I know of.
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

Thank you for your image sent and the reply.

This is definitely more than a bruise.

It looks like a venous hemangioma . I am judging that based on the fact that it has a deep blue color and the venous tributaries seen on the stretching.

I would suggest an ultrasonography test needs to be done.

By 3 months it can grow more so I would suggest that there is no harm in getting a sonography done earlier.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

It looks darker today. That picture was from a few days ago. What do you think that means
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

If it is darker then it may be growing and would need a check up by a sonography

Does that mean it's dangerous?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

It is not dangerous but should definitely be investigated like a sonography .

You cannot let it be. You need to know what lies within the skin .

She has been gaining weight quickly on top of this strange bruise. Like a pound a week and she is exclusively breastfed. Is this a concern?
Dermatologist: Dr. Pravin, Dermatologist replied 2 years ago

This weight gain is not related to this growth. No need to be worried about it.

Do let me know if you have any further queries.

Have you got an appointment for the ultrasonography test as yet ?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
She just had her ultrasound done this morning. The sonographer obviously couldn't tell us much, but she did say that she does not know where the source of the mass is. She also said that she had no idea what it is. I didn't ask her many questions because I know they have a limited amount of things they are allowed to say, this is just what she told me. She said that she would send the images to the radiologist and then they would forward the information to her PCP from there.
