Hello,
Thanks for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern. Since how many days your daughter has this mole?
Did it change in color/size/appearance/itching/pain recently?
Can you tell the maximum diameter in mm if possible?
Please revert back to me
Regards


Patient replied :

She's always had the mole but it seems like it has gotten larger as she's become older. She hasn't complained of itching or being painful and no bleeding. I would say it's bigger around than a pencil eraser. The color has remained the same. I am mainly concerned about the size of it.

Hello

Thanks for posting your query. I can understand your concern. I reviewed the pictures.

Its a birthmark which we call nevus. Its benign. Its not cancerous.

I would not recommend any action. It needs to be observed and monitored by your dermatologist every 3 months for any changes.

At times nevi grow in size but that can happen.

Please let me know if you have any queries.
Take care
