Are you considering surgery?

It's a very tough decision on whether to have a birthmark removed with surgery.  I know it wasn't an easy choice for my sister, her son had a very large one on his thigh.  He had surgery to remove it when he was about 9, he was becoming very self conscience of it and asked if they could do something about it.  It took two surgeries because of the size, but he recovered quickly.  

What factors are playing a role in your decision?
