Our expert says:
If the lesion is elevated the most likely diagnosis is that of a congenital melanocytic nevus=a mole. The diagnsois can be confirmed by taking out a tiny piece for analysis by the pathologist. If the diagnosis is correct, one must consider that the lifetime risk of developing mole cancer in the lesion is probably less than 1%. Management is somewhat controversial, but surgical removal by a plastic surgeon is likely the treatment of choice. Note well that I am going from the viewpoint that the lesion is a mole.
