I think it is #2-hemangioma. The baby I babysat when I was younger had a very large lump on her forehead that I think was a Hemangioma which I have not thought about for years till I saw your challenge. She had to have it surgically removed and last I heard about her she was in medical school.
Can't wait to see the answer.
