    Nail has Brown Horizontal Line on 5 year old daughter

    My DD has a brown strip running down her fingernail. One derm. (who did not specialize in kids) was really concerned and said that if it was his daughter he would get a biopsy on it to zero out anything serious. So we went to a pediatric derm and all she has done is look at through some microscope and says it looks consistent with all the other freckles on her body. She says it is a mole growing with the fingernail. She originally said that we would see her in 3 months then if nothing just yearly, well now it has been every 3 months because it continues to grow. Anyone else experience this? Could it just be a mole? Any thoughts?
