There are 3 different types of Spitz Nevus, classic, pigmented, or spindle cell tumour of Reed. The colours vary enormously – from light pink to brown or almost black, depending on this type.
They are often raised and resemble a dome-shaped nodule.
A Spitz Nevus can range from a few millimetres to 1-2 centimetres in diameter. They generally appear on the face or limbs.
The growth is usually solitary; however, it is possible to have multiple lesions. They tend to grow quite rapidly and can disappear spontaneously after some time.
