Congenital Nevus Removal

Kelleyb - March 16

Just wondering if anyone has a child with a congenital nevus and has had it removed with skin expanders. My son, who is almost 6 months and has one on the back of his head. We think we are getting it removed because there is close to a 5% chance of it developing into melanoma. We live near Boston so we thankfully are going to a well known plastic surgeon. Again, I was just curious as to whether anyone else has encountered this. Thank you!
