We are so thankful for Nevus Outreach and the support we've received since our daughter was born with a nevus. It's so nice to have the friendship of other parents who understand and can help us.
If you are the parent of a baby who was born with what looks like a large mole or a large birthmark, it is very possible that your child was born with a nevus, & you have come to the right place! We've been in your shoes, & we'll do everything we can to educate & support you & your family.
Nevus Outreach is dedicated to bringing awareness, providing support, and finding cures for people affected by congenital melanocytic nevi and related disorders.
There are several reasons that patients sometimes decide to undergo removal of a large nevus. Most of the time, the overriding reasons to remove a congenital pigmented nevus are first to reduce melanoma risk and second to improve appearance, which can be fundamental to improving a patient's overall psychosocial state.
