The growth of these masses is variable. They may demonstrate slow progressive growth or may enlarge rapidly. They may develop anywhere on the skin including the mouth and anus. There may be other lesions in the airway lining or internal organs that may go undetected. The period of growth may last less than a month, but often occurs up to six to nine months of age. The treatment is dictated by the location and the rate of growth. For instance, if the mass is growing on the back, a wait-and-see approach is preferred. If the mass is growing in a cosmetically sensitive area such as the lip, nose, or orbit with associated obstruction or ulceration, a more aggressive approach is appropriate. This approach includes the use of high dose steroids in conjunction with ulcer prophalaxis. This medication slows down or often halts the progression or growth until the growth phase of the lesion subsides. The medication is then tapered down.
