Customer Question

Hi. My name is ***** ***** had a mole on my upper thigh since I was a child - i can't remember how old exactly - I just remember it always being there from quite a young age. It is quite large (maybe 7mm) is only slightly raised, is light pink in colour, only slightly irregularly shapes but is mainly a sort of an oval shape - the same shape I always remember it being and has a few hairs growing through it. From what I can tell, it has not changed in shape or colour, it has never bled and is not itchy or painful. I am just wanting to know if this is something I should be concerned about?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Nope, just the above, there are no issues. I am just curious as to whether I should go and see someone about it. It's been there since I was young, and I have been told that moles that grow in childhood are usually not cause for concern unless they start changing.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dermatologists generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

No, if it hasn't changed at all this is nothing to worry about

and it looks totally benign as well
