1 Bump

Congenital nevi ("hairy mole")

anyone had a kid with this? my ds has one and had 1/2 of it removed when he was 5 months old now he is 18 months old and we're going to see the surgeon in 2 weeks about getting the rest taken off. Has anyone else gone through this?

  • Nope but thought I would bump u along! IT actually grows hair out of it? I thought that was something that only happened to adults?!

  • yes, it's something they are born with. It starts out looking like a bruise but gets darker and hair grows out of the middle of it. If not removed early it can cause skin cancer when they get to be teenagers or adults. Thanks for the bump, so far I've had no help or support. Thank you.
