Q: painful under skin birthmark

Hi, I have a birthmark onthe back of my leg that I have had since birth.  It is about the size of a 2p piece, and ever since I can remember I've been very self concious of it.  I would nbevr show my legs in day, and if I go out and wear a dress, i cover it with makeup.  It makes it less obvious but its still noticeable.


Over the last few weeks, I have had pain behind the birthmark on my leg and am quite concerned.  Is there any chance of it being removed if I go to the doctors?


Many Thanks
