A 1-year-old girl’s blood-filled growth on her forehead is removed… The result is astonishing….

According to Chloe McKnight’s mother, Ashley McKnight, when Chloe was born she had what seemed to be a tiny scrape on her forehead. This information was provided by Ashley.

According to McKnight, who resides in Oro-Medonte, Ontario, the mark developed along with Chloe and became more noticeable as she got older. It started to seem like a crimson stain on her forehead as it became larger.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, Chloe was diagnosed with a noncancerous tumor called a hemangioma when she was less than two months old. A hemangioma is a benign tumor that is made up of additional blood vessels.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), hemangiomas, which are sometimes referred to as baby birthmarks, are the most frequent benign tumors in babies. They occur in around 5% of all births in the United States.

Chloe McKnight, depicted above as a baby, was born with a hemangioma on the very top of her forehead. This can be seen in the accompanying photo.

Chloe McKnight was born with a hemangioma on the top of her forehead, as seen in the image of her when she was a baby.

According to McKnight, Chloe’s hemangioma continued to grow even though the majority of hemangiomas resolve themselves over time.

“It didn’t look like it was reserving at all and it just gradually got larger and larger,” according to her. “At first it was just really flat and red, and then it started to grow in height.”

A hemangioma was present on the top of Chloe McKnight’s forehead from the moment she was born. McKnight, who is also the mother of two kids, aged 3 and 5, said that she decided to prolong her maternity leave because she was concerned about Chloe’s wellbeing.

“It’s basically a tumor of blood vessels that would bleed if she were to bump it,” according to McKnight. “Always that was in the back of our minds, just making sure that she never hit it or anything.”

As the tumor developed, McKnight stated that she, her husband, and Chloe’s brothers touched it and kissed it as if it were simply another part of Chloe, despite the fact that they were aware that it caused others to stare when they were out in public.

“If you were going out, you would always be reminded of it because people would obviously look up and be curious and wonder what it is,” she said, adding that the coronavirus epidemic made it easier for the family to remain in their “own little bubble” at home. “If you were going out, you would always be reminded of it because people would obviously look up and be curious and wonder what it is,” she said.

McKnight said that she and her husband looked for a surgeon who could remove the tumor from Chloe’s face while doing the least amount of harm possible to Chloe’s appearance as Chloe became older and the growth of the tumor proceeded.

Before Chloe McKnight has surgery to remove a hemangioma from her forehead, she enjoys playing with her two brothers. Chloe’s hemangioma is located on her forehead.

The McKnights were able to connect with Dr. Gregory Levitin, who is the head of the vascular birthmarks and malformations program at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai in New York City, by joining a Facebook community for parents of children who have hemangiomas.

When it came to surgery on Chloe’s tumor, Levitin said there was “no textbook” since it was “unusually large” and one for which “there is no textbook.”

“When I get these large ones, to have one on the forehead skin is an incredibly challenging area because you don’t have a lot of extra tissue to borrow from,” said the dermatologist. “It acts like a cancer in the sense that it invades and takes up valuable tissue in the face.”

Chloe and McKnight went to New York City in January so that Chloe could have surgery. McKnight accompanied Chloe.

Chloe’s tumor was removed by Levitin during a three-hour operation in which he concentrated on not only restraining the blood vessels that were contained inside the tumor, but also ensuring that her face retained its natural appearance following the procedure.

“[The tumor] dropped and touched the muscle of the forehead, so preserving the muscle and allowing her to have facial expressions was important,” said to Levitin. “We wanted the shortest scar possible and so finding ways to manipulate the tissue to get the shortest scar possible was equally important.”

According to McKnight, Levitin was able to effectively remove the hemangioma that was located on Chloe, and the recuperation process has been remarkably uncomplicated.

Chloe McKnight, who had surgery to remove a hemangioma from the top of her forehead, is supported by her mother, Ashley, while she recovers from the procedure.

“I feel like she had a harder time with teething pain than with this whole process,” according to McKnight. “It made me realize how resilient children are.”

According to McKnight, despite the fact that it will take many more months for the swelling on Chloe’s forehead to go down, the toddler is even more active than she was before surgery.

It was claimed of her that she was always going, going, going. “She was just herself and off to the races.”

Chloe McKnight had a hemangioma on the upper part of her forehead removed during a procedure that took place at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary at Mount Sinai. According to Levitin, he often observes a change such as that in patients since hemangiomas may be an extremely draining condition because they use energy supplies in the body.

“They take up a lot of blood volume and, in doing so, process a lot of the blood and nutrients,” added the physician. “I hear many stories about parents who feel within 24 hours that there’s been a transformation in their children’s behavior and energy.”

A hemangioma was present on the top of Chloe McKnight’s forehead from the moment she was born. She had surgery to get it removed, and these two pictures show her both before and after the procedure.

To be able to have such an influence on a youngster, as Levitin put it, is “incredibly rewarding.”

“It’s an incredibly rewarding part of my job when I can take a child from a mother’s arms and return her back to that mother’s arms afterwards completely changed and with an appearance which is how she was first born, and now how she’ll live for the rest of her life,” according to him.
