No photo

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

No--looks totally benign

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Do new moles look like that when they appear

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

No they don't and this doesn't look like a mole

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

It's been there a week amd doesn't itch

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Most likely just a patch of eczema and moles just don't develop that quickly

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

It's raised just like a mole. And cancerous spots don't appear on the skin and look like?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

So can eczema be raised. But I didn't understand your last question?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I know skin cancer can appear on skin not just on a mole. Just making sure that wasn't it. Can bug bites last that long and not itch

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Doesn't look like a bug bite. But again has no resemblance to any skin cancer

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

100 percent not cancer?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

Now that's not a fair question

It looks totally benign but no one just with a photo would absolutely guarantee that a spot was not cancer

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

As long as it's not basal or melanoma I'm good.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

It's neither of those
