What is this blood like clot on my baby's forehead. It was smaller when she was 1 week but now has increased in size and doctor said to wait for one year after which surgery would be prescribed if it remains there. Is it really a cause of concern? I am uploading her two pics one at around one week and another of right today.. Please see and suggest if it's the usual case and what should I care for in this regard.

Dr. Priyanka Patel pls

It appears as if it is getting normalized also please tell me any blood reports done for baby so far, and current weight of your baby

Her current wt is 3.840 she was born preterm at 1.710 kg... routine blood tests were done by Hospital and they said everything is normal

This is more of a mixed or strawberry hemangioma but it might go on its own as I can see in the Latest baby pic but I do need discharge summary where it would be mentioned about severity

Dr. Priyanka Patel it was nowhere mentioned in the discharge summary itself.. Sometimes I doubt if it is because of the mishandling during care of the baby in NICU by nursing staff. I am attaching discharge summary

Ideally there should be a pedeatrician round report aswell which is missing these are the daily metrics taken by pedeatrician. But dont worry baby wont need surgery we ned to wait till 4 months and see how the skin changes its colour is there any difficulty in latching or feeding experienced by the baby

No, Dr. Madam no such difficulty in breastfeeding so far.. I hope no surgery will be required in future... Thanks for ur valuable opinion..
