Since how long are you having this spot?

Does it cause any symptoms?

Has it changed recently?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I just nit iced it, there are no symptoms. Don't know if there are any changes.

Thank you for your response.

This seems to be a small area of hyperpigmentation or in other words it could be a flat mole.

Does not seem like anything serious or anything to worry about.

On your next doctor's visit I would just let your doctor know about this just to be sure.
