• Can a choroidal nevus be removed?


    Question:

    Can a choroidal nevus be removed surgically?


    Answer:

    Because of its location so close to the retina, a choroidal nevus cannot be removed without great risk to the eye. But a choroidal nevus should be monitored regularly for growth or change in appearance. However, it is quite rare for a nevus to develop into a melanoma (cancerous growth).
