Customer Question

My husband got our GP to look over his skin. He questioned one that has 2 different colours. He didn't think it was too much of a concern but wanted it checked anyway. My husband had his skin checked 2 years ago by a dermatologist and has had no changes
since. Beside the colour variant there are no other factors (even borders etc) our question is * can healthy moles have more than one colour? * do you think we have cause for concern?

Our GP thought it looked like a dysplastic nevi, does it look like that to you?

Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.

Would a clearer picture of the mole be possible - possibly with a flash?

Yes a normal mole can have slight variation in color (e.g. light brown to dark brown) but not two differing colors such as blue and brown or blue and black
