Unknown, but careful monitoring needed.

This is a very difficult birthmark to treat, and hence I'm answering this. Usually treatments are conducted at an early age by a plastic surgeon. 

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
