Nevi and Moles

About 1 in 1,000 children are born with birthmarks every year. Some of these birthmarks are brown-black colored because of pigment containing cells called melanocytes. These lesions can be small spots or giant size that cover all or part of the face or other parts of the body. Some of these lesions may have potential to develop in to cancer and should be checked and may need to be removed early in infancy. They do not spontaneously go away and if they are large and unsightly should be surgically removed.

Primum non nocere” - “never do harm” is my underlying philosophy.”
