My 17 year old daughter has a dome shaped (< 1 cm) skin

Customer Question

My 17 year old daughter has a dome shaped (< 1 cm) skin colored mole with a light blue squiggle in the middle. We had it looked at by her GP a couple of years ago, and he said that it was nothing to worry about, and that we should put warm compresses on it to draw the blue part out of the mole. That never worked, but he didn't seem concerned. Now the dome is a little larger, but the blue squiggle is the same size, as it as it was. Should we be concerned? I have read about the blue Nevus. Could this be what it is? How often are they malignant? Are we over reacting? I would guess the size of the dome at just under 1 cm.

Thank you for the additional information.

This seems UNLIKELY to be a blue nevus from the pictures that you have shown me.

It is very unlikely to be anything serious.

I would not worry whatsoever.
