  • It will just keep on growing, like when she gets pregnant, etc. When it is still small it can be removed by laser, but if it gets large she will need a lumpectomy. Get it done while you're ahead.

  • Please listen to your doctor. If you don't have it done soon then you are risking your daughters life.

  • Get a second and third opinion.

  • Get another opinion. I've had them and done nothing and they went away on their own.

  • I would say if it isn't bothering her leave it alone. If it is bothering it her then talk to her and her doctor about removal.
