Thank you for the picture. It doesn't look scary to me but it is impossible to form a solid opinion on a skin lesion from just a picture.
So. What can we say about this pigmented mole thing:
It might be a spitz nevi. But, First and foremost a spitz nevi IS NOT A CANCER; it is not a melanoma and it is nothing to worry about.
Also, melanomas are very, very, very rare in 7 year olds while benign nevi are common.....
Once it is removed tomorrow the pathologist will take a look under the microscope and you will know exactly what it is....
As a surgeon and a father of five I can tell you that I do not see any reason to freak out at this point ;)
Make sense to you?
Don't forget to mash the positive feedback button for me...the one labeled "excellent" is the most fun to push by far ;)
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.

Best of luck tomorrow.
Have a Happy Holiday Season :)
