My daughter has a congenital nevi. We get it checked ever 12

Customer Question

My daughter has a congenital nevi. We get it checked ever 12 to 18 months. But it has always looked un-uniform...that is why I had it looked at to begin with. It's about the size of a pencil eraser. Why does it not follow the abc rules? Our dermatologist
never explained that to us and I was just curious.

Unfortunately, in all to many cases, Life does not follow the rules laid out in medical textbooks.....

That is why Doctors were invented ;)

If you are concerned about this nevi I would suggest you have an excisional biopsy done. This way you will know exactly what it is and it will be gone completely.

Does this 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.
