What is Congenital Melanocytic Nevus?

Congenital Melanocytic Nevus is a benign skin lesion made of Nevus Cells (Melanocytes Cells that enter the dermis). It affects 1-6% of the population. It presents as a pale patch at birth then becomes brown over time. The mole is symmetrical and well defined, can be flat or raised, hairy or hairless. More this Congenital Melanocytic Nevus is big more the risk of degeneration into skin cancer (Malignant Melanoma) is higher.

Surgical removal is performed if there are any changes of the mole or for cosmetic reasons. The procedure will be done under local anaesthetic and would last approximately 30 minutes. The skin needs to be incised and the lesion cut out. The wound will be closed with sutures and a dressing will be applied on. It will leave a linear scar that usually fades away over the years.
