hi,
Certainly your problem can be solve by surgeon or dermatologist. Naevi are genetically related tumor and usually benign, that is not dangerous apart from their disfiguring effect. If you do not want to get it remove, then it will be hard to fine a medical treatment for that. There are surgical techniques now that can make wound heal with minor scar. My advise is that you contact a dermatologist/surgeon.
take care
