What causes a hamartoma?

Although we don't know the exact cause of hamartomas, there does seem to be a tendency for them to occur within families.

What are the symptoms of a hamartoma?

Every child experiences symptoms differently. Some common symptoms that your child may have include:

  • swelling or lump in the head or neck
  • pain in the chin, neck or face
  • hoarseness
