There’s an entity that we call a Becker nevus — essentially, it presents as a dark patch with can be hairy and tends to be on the upper chest or trunk but often extends to the neck, shoulders and arms. It usually happens in boys/men and crops up before puberty. So what to do with a Becker nevus? Well, one could leave it alone. However, some individuals are concerned about either the hair growth, the coloration, or both of these aspects. In this case, laser therapy can be pursued to remove the hair and/or lighten the area.
