Default a child with with giant hairy nevus

one of my mother's facebook friends saw a picture of me and sent a picture to her earlier this year of a baby with what looks like a giant hairy nevus circling the left eye.

the mother of the child seems to be in denial from what i can piece together. doesn't really want family members to see the child and so on. even thinks its getting smaller. the family member who forwarded the pic to me was concerned. i recommended they get an appointment with a doctor who i have met a few times who has a small one. he's knowledgeable with birthmarks which is great. very patience when explaining things. the one thing i do know is that over time it needs to be checked for skin cancer right ?

about a month ago my mom actually got a glimpse of the baby. she said its very large on his face.

my concern is how is the child's mother going to cope with the cosmetic issue as he grows older and becomes more aware. I hope one day his mother will be able to handle things better. its great he has a loving family and i believe it will be up to them to help his self esteem and educate him they best they can
