A sebaceous nevus appears as a yellow/orange, smooth birthmark, often found in the scalp. They may appear patchy and without hair. These birthmarks have a risk of becoming a skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma). The gold standard of treatment is surgical excision.
Surgical Excision (after age 6 months)
** if present on the scalp and very large we may recommend excision beginning at age 3-4 months
