I found a small...

I found a small freckle on top of my right foot and it was not there before. It was the day I wore a very heavy sock with a flat show. My right foot hurt a lot the next day and then the freckle appeared. Could be something really serious?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The pain is gone now. The freckle is still there.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not really.

Here it is

Got it--thanks

Is it completely flat?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Completely flat.

OK

Nothing at all serious

Skin cancers like squamous cell and basal cell carcinomas don't look at all like that, and melanomas don't just suddenly pop up like this

This is likely just a small area of hyperpigmentation--a bit like a freckle--that was caused by wearing the heavy sock

It may well disappear in a day or two but it isn't anything at all serious

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
