Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello and thanks for your question. Thanks for the information. Your concern is a good one. The malignant transformation rate of conjunctival nevi into melanomas is quite low. It sounds as though you are receiving excellent follow-up for this. The good news is that it is quite common for these to grow somewhat and change somewhat during puberty as your son is likely nearing, if not in. To that end, I wouldn't worry too much, especially in light of your excellent follow-up. If there are malignant appearing features to this that arise, it sounds like your doctor would be on top of it in plenty of time. Does that make sense?

OK. Please note that the letest 0.5 mm in change was my observation. We saw his doctor 6 months ago. I an assuming it is normal for the mole to grow slighlty and it is safe to wait another siz months to see our doctor again. Thanks and I will accept
