A one-year girl who had a tumor made up of blood vessels that kept getting ‘larger and larger’ has had the noncancerous growth removed from her forehead during a three-hour surgery, Your Content has learned.
Ashley McKnight, from Oro-Medonte, Ontario, shared her daughter Chloe’s story with Good Morning America this week.
Chloe was born 15 months ago with what looked like a small scratch on her head.
She wasn’t even two months old when she was diagnosed with a hemangioma, a benign tumor made up of blood vessels that gather under the skin.
While hemangiomas usually go away on their own, Chloe’s kept growing.
McKnight traveled to New York City with Chloe in January to have the tumor removed by Dr. Gregory Levitin, who said the growth was ‘unusually large’
The three-hour surgery was a success, and Chloe has become even more active since the tumor was removed with minimal scarring,‘according to USMail24.
