DERMDOC19: i've had this mole on my leg for about 1.5 years,

Customer Question

DERMDOC19: HI, i've had this mole on my leg for about 1.5 years, or at least that's as long as I remember having it. It's about 1.2mm and has been since I noticed it, I've measured it. it's medium brown and on the back of my leg. I've had skin checks since knowing I've had it and nobody ever said anything about it. Is it then unlikely to be melanoma especially if it hasn't grown?
