I am sorry that you are having this problem but will do my best to assist you and answer your questions. I’m assuming you mean a choroidal nevus?
These are benign lesions It’s important to distinguish them from a melanoma so I’m sure that is what your eye Dr did.
Choroidal nevi are benign melanocytic lesions of the posterior uvea. In the United States, their prevalence ranges from 4.6 percent to 7.9 percent in Caucasians. By comparison, choroidal melanoma is rare, manifesting in approximately six in 1 million Caucasian individuals.

I’m not sure why you are worried if the optometrist said its nothing to worry about ? Its a benign lesion. Its nothing to worry about
A brain tumor and this lesion have nothing at all to do with each other. This lesion is a benign lesion, and has nothing to do with a history of cancer in the family.
