Hi!asamnewu ,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

You have not mentioned the size of the nevus and does the nevus have good hair growth over it.The little you have mentioned it seems to be a BECKERS NEVUS to me.It looks like a brown patch with excess hair growth over it.
You cannot go for any surgery on this ,but you can take a laser treatment for it.Lasers requires multiple sessions to get a fair result .The final out come also depends upon your original skin type.In such cases we first remove the hair growth over the lesion ,and then go for removal of pigmentation.So,it means that we require two different laser machine to tackle this kind of nevus.I would advise you to consult a dermatologist at your place who has good experience in lasers .

regards,
Dr.chawda

I was bit by a medium sized dog about 12 days ago. There was a little tooth mark, but the dog did not break the skin and I didn t bleed. However, I had a black & blue the size of my fist. As the black & blue is now disappearing, I noticed a golf ball size lump, which is changing shape and is now like a large man s thumb under my skin. I am on Warfarin and am concerned even though I went to the doctor and got a tetnis (T-Dap) shot. What can I do to get rid of the lump?

I am a 53 year old woman, for some months now I have had itching around my anus, now I have some moles. I have shown them to the Doctor who says they are OK, but the itching has increased and as far as I can tell another mole has started to grow. What are they? Should I ask for another opinion?

I m a 29 year old male and I have a few questions. I have made an appointment with a dermatologist but I am curious to a few things I have going on. I have quite a few flat moles that aren t raised above the surface but are irregular in shape/borders. I have noticed a small amount of possible discoloration in them. The largest one is on my back and what I thought was numb from a previous mole removed, I just realized is no where near the area of the mole I had removed. The numbness is about 1-2 inches around the mole. I m wanting to know if numbness and itching is a characteristic of cancer or not?
