Cogenital Nevus Mole On Scalp

0 Replies
Kelleyb - July 5

My 9 month old son has a congenital nevus on the back of his head. The hair in the area is thicker and darker. We brought him to a Ped. dermatologist at Children's Hosp. He then recommended we see a plastic surgeon. The surgeron recommended getting it remove because there is a 6% chance it could develop into melanoma. The surgery requires skin expanders and will take 3 months to complete from start to finish. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this, or I would like to hear what other people would do. Thanks everyone!
