Nevus Outreach, in collaboration with Naevus Global and University Children’s Hospital Zurich, has begun a comprehensive world-wide study on the well-being of children and adolescents born with a congenital melanocytic nevus (CMN), and the well-being of their parents. Eligible for this study are parents of a child born with a nevus (from birth to 18 years old) and adolescents born with a nevus (ages 14-18 years). All cases count, whether the nevus has been surgically removed or not. The input of each family and teenager is important.
