Re: I have Choroid freckle. Mother died of melanoma
I am very sorry to hear about your mother's death and I very much understand your concerns.
You should ask for a follow up with your ophthalmologist (or optometrist) every six months. He or she might do initial diagnostic tests as an ultra-sound to your eye, and take a photo of your fundus ( the back of your eye ).
There are certain criteria by which we follow choroidal nevi to early detect their transformation into a melanoma. These include the thickness, their colour, any fluid under the eye, and if you are having any symptoms at all...
I hope you find this helpful.
Wishing you all the best.
