Anybody ever heard of a spitz-nevus type mole?

My daughter has a reddish brown spot on her leg, that appeared a couple of months ago. It is flat and not irregular looking. It has a tiny normal brown mole within the red spot. She is going to the doctor next week. Someone mentioned this to me and I googled it. It does not appear to be a cancerous type of lesion. I don't know that it is one, but the way it looks fits all the symtoms.

  • I would definitely take her to a dermatologist and have it looked at. It's probably nothing, but better safe than sorry.
