<p>Even if you do have a port wine mark- they can be treated! [url=http://www.scars1.com/Education_Center/Treatments/Laser_Scar_Removal_Resurfacing]Lasers that are used for scars also can remove dis-colored stains like port wine stains[/url]. </p>

<p>The bottom line is- keep it, if it makes you distinguished like Gorbachev... Or if not, get it removed. Or make it the center of a tat..! </p>

<p>Is it somewhere that you wouldn't have noticed it earlier? They're farely common (1 in every 333 people has one) and typically aren't a big deal. They're caused by abnormal formation of veins If you've never noticed it before, it's possible that the skin around that area is thinning and the veins are becomming more visible. Or it might just be in a place that you don't typically notice. My brother started balding a few years back and was surprised to find a port wine stain on a part of his head that had always previously been covered with hair. </p>
