The greater number of the nevi are small and difficult to notice, but there are some which, because of their type and size, cause discomfort and disfigure the good look of the skin. The nevus can be ulcerated and cause a medical problem, if it is on a part of the body exposed to friction with clothes or jewellery. If a nevus has changed its initial color or form, if it bleeds because of injury or because it has been partially removed inadvertantly, it is preferable to make an appointment for a consultation by dermatologist.

The early and proper diagnosing is extremely important before the removal, and you will discuss this with Dr. Nikolay Georgiev, from whom you will receive the complete information about the methods of nevus removal.
