Default questions about PWS

Hi! I'm 29 years old and I have had a red birthmark on my left leg (running from my ankle up to my knee) all my life. My mom brought me to doctors before but they said that treatment wouldn't really take it all out. Besides, it wasn't a really big with me. Now that I'm about to get married and have plans of having kids, I have a couple of questions that some of you might want to help me with:

1. Are birthmarks hereditary?
2. I've read that PWS that occur in limbs may have K-T Syndrome. From the things I read about that, it seems that "things" grow from the limbs. I've never had anything wrong with my leg. It's just red! Should I worry about getting K-T Syndrome?

Well, that's about it. I'm just curious. Hope some of you could help.
