I thought the same thing. Its not cute! It could be cancerous! What an idiot! I wanted to smack her.
When my son was little, he had a mole on his wrist that grew twice it's size in a short time. I hauled him right to the dermatologist who removed it. Thank God it wasn't cancerous. My son (who was maybe 5 at the time) did really well and only cried because he wanted his mole back.
