nevus
If there's atypical nevus on the conjunctiva or anywhere else does that increase your chances of getting nevus inside the eye (retina/choroid).

Thanks for your help

Thanks Dr.

One more question. What's happen if the nevus is on both eyes, does that increase your chance getting it inside the eye.
