Unknown, but careful monitoring needed.
This birthmark as you correctly pointed out is a bathing trunk congenital naevus. It has a moderate chance of melanoma, and you will NEED to be seen by a dermatologist every 4-8 months. All the best.
Hope that helps, regardsDr Davin LimDermatologist, Cosmetic and Laser
