Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Hemihypertrophy is not curable but manageable. For example if the bones and structures are involved they can be corrected ph maybe redistributed, spine scoliotic can be corrected, long bones if variable in length can be adjusted. But such patients with hemihypertrophy or it increased risk of malignancy. That is why we recommend 3 to 6 months monitoring for many neuronal and embryonic tumors like neuroblastoma, hepatoma, wilm's tumor, hepatoblastoma and many other malignancies. You need to stay in touch with your doctor and have frequent at least once every 6 months to be screened with all the best line parameters to rule out any underline Trigger.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
