Yes, larger moles can occur anywhere on the body, even the scalp. The main thing to remember is the ABCDE's.... Any changes in moles; Asymmetry, Borders, Color, Diameter, and Elevation are the ABC rule for moles. Changes in the shape (Asymmetry), changes in the borders of the mole (if the shape changes), if the mole gets larger than it once was (anything greater than 6 mm is considered suspicious, and elevation-if the mole is elevated or raised from the skin it should be considered suspicious.
Melanoma would be very unlikely. I think that since moles run in the family, he has just inherited this and if anything, just have the Pediatrician to keep an eye on it. Changes in the mole are a red flag.

I appreciate your understanding. I don't remember the name, she was female and blond. However, the main thing I was interested in was a medical doctor was some type of experience with children. Thanks again.
Hmm, I'm not sure who's profile you would have seen, but I will be happy to opt out and see if someone else will take the question. Have a blessed day!
