Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- A Board Certified Physician and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Please provide me the following information so that I can address your concern-

For how long you have such moles?

Have they increased in size, changed shape/ changed color with time?

Can you please share picture.

Thanks

Expert:  Dr Josh replied 1 year ago.

Dear,

Thanks for staying Online.

Well, Most moles are completely harmless.

Moles are usually circular or oval with a smooth border.

Moles can appear at any time during your life.

If you have any of these below things-

-moles with uneven coloring,

-moles with an uneven or ragged edge,

-bleeding, itching, red, inflamed (swollen) or crusty moles.

then it should be checked by doctor.

In your case, it is completely benign in nature. No need to get panic.

This would not develop into any serious issue. Please don't worry.

Doctor usually follow, this formula for Mole-

ABCDE method.

· A – asymmetry

· B – border irregularity

· C – colour change

· D – diameter

· E – elevated (raised) or enlarged.

As there is no change in color or size since years, and you don't have any other associated symptoms.

So I would not be worried. Please don't panic. You are completely safe and healthy.

Hope this helped

The one on my stomach I've had as long as I can remember, found the one on my pinky 10 years ago and recently found the one on my hand. I'll post photos.

To be honest, I would not be worried.

This is completely benign in nature and would not develop into serious issue.

Here's my hand and pinky
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm concerned maybe they aren't moles.... I recently did a lot of research on warts and I'm worried maybe that's what what are.
Expert:  Dr Josh replied 1 year ago.

Dear,

It is neither a Mole nor Wart. Please don't panic.

This can be just change in skin pigmentation, due to specialized cells called melanocytes, in skin.

Please don't worry. Just leave them alone.

I am sure this would not develop into any serious issue.

Please don't worry at all. Just relax.

God bless you and take care.

Is this true even though they are raised slightly and round? The one on myour hand has a Tiny pin prick mark that's barely noticeable to the naked eye and only in certain lights . As long as they aren't warts or contagious I'm happy.
Expert:  Dr Josh replied 1 year ago.

Dear,

I am pretty sure that it is not related with wart or any other contagious disease.

Please don't worry and relax at home.

I understand that it is slightly raised, This is completely benign in nature.

No need to panic.

Ok, last thing, I decided to scrap them with a blade and they pulled off just like normal skin. Warts wouldn't do that correct? Perhaps something was in my hand?
Expert:  Dr Josh replied 1 year ago.

Dear,

Warts, if pulled out usually would come back again and warts can reappear again after pulling out.

As you said, it got pulled off like normal skin, this itself clears warts possibility.

Please don't worry, this is not wart. No need to worry.

Hope this helped

Yes, this is not wart. I am pretty sure.

As you have scarped it with blade, and new skin has come. There is no bleeding.
