    Excision of the entire lesion is recommended. Nevus sebaceus has a tendency to develop basal cell carcinoma within the nevus after puberty. This is best performed just before puberty, when the lesion is still small and the patient is old enough to understand and tolerate the procedure. A larger lesion may be excised in stages without any concern of inducing malignant change.
