Doctor insights on:
No: Whether you get a Becker's (only about 1 guy in 200 is so fortunate) and whether you're hairy over the rest of your body are independent. I hope you like whatever Mother Nature gave you. Richard Gere loves his Becker's, and most of your male friends are at least a little bit jealous if you're super-hairy. You can shave, but consider leaving the Becker's along; many folks will think it's way-cool ...Read more
What to do if i'm suffering frm becker's naevus and have a lot of body hair.So is this the reason?
Let's talk about it: Both are genetic -- it's you. I have several physician colleagues with Beckers' nevi and every one of them likes them. You can get lasered if you want, with so-so results, or you can embrace this special patch of testosterone-sensitive skin. It's essentially no danger, and you'll find folks who like you like the mark as well. If you prefer smooth, shaving, waxing, lasers / electrolysis are options ...Read more
Not really: Nobody really likes the terms "pigmented hairy epidermal nevus" or "nevoid melanosis". I have several colleagues who are physicians and/or athletes who have Becker nevi and all of them like it. If you have one, I hope you enjoy it as well. Richard Gere's is famous and he used to show it off onscreen. Best wishes. ...Read more
No: Clark's nevus is a type of atypical (dysplastic) nevus or mole. Many dermatologists feel these are benign, some experts think they're precursors to melanoma. Having many clark's nevi always increases the risk of melanoma. Becker's nevus is a benign (normal) nevus that occurs on the trunk, often in boys and men. They're often large and light brown. Sometimes hairs can grow from it (after puberty). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A 7 mm naevus brown round not changed ever ,looked for last december by a dermatologist is dangerous ?
Same locus: Becker's is caused by a milder allele than Duchenne's but otherwise they are the same disease. If you have mutant dystrophin and symptoms but are walking at age 16, it's Becker's. We are all hoping that gene therapy will come through for this disease group. ...Read more

Lucky you!: Only about one guy in 200 has a Becker's nevus. It's harmless and distinctive. Richard Gere liked his so much that he emphasized it in his shirtless scenes. Other noted mainstream / "adult" male stars & some of my Dr. friends sport a Becker's as well. Laser removal won't be complete, and you'll be wise to let everyone know that you're proud of it. Your future wife may totally love it. Cheers. ...Read more
Lucky you!: Only about one guy in 200 has one of these. Richard Gere is so proud of his that he chose to have it emphasized in his lovemaking scenes. Several other mainstream / erotic male actors sport Beckers' & several of my Dr. friends all like theirs. There's no significant cancer risk (just watch it). Laser Rx won't remove it completely, and it's likely that your future wife will totally love it. ...Read more
