How can I manage symptoms of a Spitz nevus?
A Spitz nevus is a mole with a dome-like shape. This type of mole looks very much like melanoma, a type of skin cancer. In fact, having a Spitz nevus may mean you are at increased risk for skin cancer. A Spitz nevus may bleed or ooze. This type of mole should be examined as soon as possible by your doctor or dermatologist.
Depending on the location of the Spitz nevus, you may have other symptoms, such as discomfort from pressure or irritation. Your doctor or dermatologist can help you understand how to manage this type of mole and what treatment is most suitable.
