  • I have Becker's nevus on the top of my right pectoral. I'm heavily into fitness and weight lifting. I've noticed that it is impossible for me to develop an even chest. Muscle seems to not grow where my nevus is located. Does Becker's nevus prohibit muscle development? Does the nevus affect me in that manner, and if so, is there any way to fix this?
