Hi Elizabeth
congenital melanocytic nevus has a potential of developing cancerous change.
3cm nevus with atypia is certainly a cause of worry.
Is it growing or stationary?

Early surgical excision is recommended in rapidly growing CMN.
If its stationary you can wait for few months,
Other treatmnet are laser ,cryo surgery, dermabrasion.
