Hello?
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 4 months ago.

Hello,

You can use the paper clip icon at the top of the reply box. You can also put the picture on a file sharing site and put its address in the reply box.

Moles are either melanoma or they aren't. They don't "turn into" melanoma. I think we've had this conversation several times before.

Best regards,

Schuyler

It did it. Are you there
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 4 months ago.

Sorry, I was helping other customers.

Yes, this is a perfectly normal mole. Since you had a skin exam less than 6 weeks ago, there is no chance that this is anything new.

Best regards,

Schuyler

you said miles don't become cancerous over time or exposure? I had a mole on my tummy almost all my life and 2 years ago it changed and was melanoma
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 4 months ago.

Two years is not 6 weeks.

What you have is a perfectly normal mole.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No I understand that:) you just said it just doesn't turn melanomas I I was confused. I had a mole all my life and 2 years ago it turned to melanoma. "Turn to melanoma" so a mile on my son now can't turn into melanoma? I'm confused
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 4 months ago.

Over time one can develop melanoma. HOWEVER, the picture of the mole you showed me is NOT melanoma.
