I was told I have a nevus in my eye. Follow up in a year. How often do these become cancer? I think the Dr said it was in the choroidal area?

In brief: Very rare

I have never experienced one becoming a cancer but it does happen.
Ask your eye professional about the chance. If it is stable over several years, they won't watch it very closely after that.
