Brief Answer: You are having melanocytic nevus. Detailed Answer: Hi, After seeing photographs and reading short history, I feel that you are having melanocytic nevus. At present , it is benign.. But ,there is possibility for conversion to malignant melanoma. I advise for complete excision of the lesion. It may be removed by electrocautery or simple surgical excision. Both are minor surgeries done in OPD under local anaesthesia. For that, you consult dermatologist. I hope you got my answer. Still, any query, you may ask. Thanks. Dr. Ilyas Patel MD
