In regard to congenital nevi, there is sufficient evidence to state that large lesions (those greater than 20 cm in diameter) have a significant risk factor that is Cited by: Melanoma is the fourth most common cancer in New Zealand and incidence is increasing. New Zealand has the highest rate of melanoma worldwide and risk is greatest for non-Māori men aged over 50 years. The clinical lesion is usually an irregularly shaped, asymmetrical lesion with varying colors with a history of recent change in size, shape, colour or sensation. Precursor lesions, such as dysplastic melanocytic nevi develop into a melanoma in situ stage and further into invasive melanoma and eventually metastatic melanoma. Invasive malignant melanoma is traditionally divided into four principal histopathological subgroups based on the microscopical appearance: superficial spreading melanoma (SSM.

Melanocytic nevi on the scalp often manifest many of the clinical and histological features of dysplastic nevi, but prophylactic excision is not generally recommended due to the low risk of malignant degeneration. 6 Excision of scalp nevi in children may be considered for very large or atypical melanocytic nevi, in children with a family.

Junctional nevi are benign melanocytic neoplasms in which nests are seen exclusively in the epidermis, predominantly at the dermoepidermal junction (Figs. to ).Features of a benign junctional melanocytic proliferation include relatively small size.

A melanocytic nevus (also known as nevocytic nevus, nevus-cell nevus and commonly as a mole) is a type of melanocytic tumor that contains nevus cells.

Some sources equate the term mole with "melanocytic nevus", but there are also sources that equate the term mole with any nevus form.

The majority of moles appear during the first two decades of a person's life, with about one in Specialty: Dermatology. Such melanocytic lesions that are difficult to classify as either benign or malignant may be categorised using various terms, including ‘borderline melanoma’, ‘minimal deviation melanoma’, ‘dermal based borderline melanocytic tumour’, ‘atypical cellular blue naevus’, ‘pigmented epithelioid melanocytoma’, ‘borderline deep.
