Thank you for your query.

There is no difference between a mole or a nevus. Nevus is the medical terminology. Moles do grow with age which must be the case with your daughter. The best course would be to wait and watch.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
