I do understand your concern. The concern is primarily aesthetic or cosmetic. Birthmarks may require surgical therapy for cosmetic reasons. However prior to this, a thorough assessment of the extent of the birthmark has to be determined. Some birthmarks invade deeper tissues and some may be vascular which may entail risk for bleeding. Other birthmarks are located in areas wherein constant pressure and friction
( eg sole of the foot) requires for their removal.
Have this assessed by your doctor. Discuss your concerns with him/her so that you will be guided accordingly
