I've had this mole of about 1.5-2 year, as far as i remember

Customer Question

hello, i've had this mole of about 1.5-2 year, as far as i remember having it. I don't believe it has changed, and I have been measuring it since noticing it, it's 1.2mm. It's medium brown and on my leg. Is it likely, that since it hasn't grown, it isn't melanoma? I believe I've had a mole check since having this mole and I don't think anyone mentioned it as being a concern.

Hi, Dr. Stan here to help you today. The size and contour does not make me think it is a Melanoma. Melanomas are irregular in shape, greater than 6mm, irregular in color and raised. What you have is a common mole. There is no need to be alarmed.
