Yes: In fact, this is fairly common. No one knows where spitz nevus leaves off and a melanoma capable of metastasizing begins. This is one of the hardest calls in pathology, and some say it's impossible. The burning question will be whether to do additional surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Maybe, maybe not: If the tumor is benign then it might not need to come out. However, if it's in there long enough, it might start to cause problems like blocking the ducts to your mammary glands. Also, just because it's benign today doesn't mean it won't transform at some point. It might be worth having it out, if it's simple and easy to do. See your local surgeon for more ideas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It depends.: First of all, I am assuming you mean a 4.2 centimeter tumor. If so, the first issue is to determine if this tumor is "functional", meaning that it secretes abnormal amounts of normal substances such as Epinephrine or steroids. If it is not functional, most people will watch tumors less than 4 CM and remove those larger than 6cm; the decision for those 4-6cm is often based on one's age and health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
