medical qustion about possible tumor on 9-month-old and eyelid swelling & itching

My baby had a strange fatty area on her wrist/arm when she was born. At 7 months it showed a bruise which got worse, not better, at which time it got hard around the bruise and over time has gotten tighter and more raised, but also has gone through other changes. It got deeper and rounder, looking like a hole filled with blood with hardened tissue around it, then an actual large bruise came across the whole area so you could not see the hole, then that went away and showed two holes filled with blood, but new one faded and went away, leaving the first. It is now quite high and tight. It never hurt her much- does not seem inflamed. She has no fever. She is now 9 months and the dr.s want to put her under and cut it out but they don't know what it is. They tell me it's benign. She developed dark circles under her eyes and then they became red and puffyand itchy, along with an ear infection. Taking amox, eyes still puffy
