You are right, hemangiomas are a type of benign tumor. Hemangiomas often appear when the baby is a small lump as a result of abnormal growth of blood vessels. Although the exact cause of hemangioma is not yet known in infants, the influence of heredity and premature history in infants can influence it.
Some cases of hemangiomas do not require treatment and can disappear on their own as the baby ages. But some cases also require direct treatment from a doctor to remove hemangiomas, with drugs or small operative measures.
Therefore, you don't need to worry. Although hemangiomas are categorized as benign tumors, they are not dangerous. Often benign hemangioma tumors rarely turn malignant, because most of the congenital hemangiomas from birth can disappear by themselves over time with or without treatment. The possibility of hemangioma suffered by your child has experienced shrinkage. But to be sure, it would be better if you visit a dermatologist in person to have a thorough evaluation. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
