Hello,

Any change in naevus like change in its color, size, texture, rapidly enlarging, or causing pain may be a sign of cancer formation; otherwise, it is not harmful. You need not worry about that.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Deepak Sundriyal
