I go yearly. These are new. I had one removed once and it was atypical.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I zoomed way in on ththe first one.
Dermatologist: Eric Goldstein, Doctor replied 1 year ago
Hi. Just looked at the pictures.
There is nothing there that is any cause for concern. As you probably already know, you want to make sure they remain protected from the sun.

One more picture of the same three.
Dermatologist: Eric Goldstein, Doctor replied 1 year ago
Just took a look at the third one. Nothing of concern in the picture. Just remember sun safety.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok. So those 3 don't look abnormal?
I wear rash guards. And hats. And sun block. I still seem to get new freckles and moles. It's frustrating.
Dermatologist: Eric Goldstein, Doctor replied 1 year ago
Correct. No abnormalities.
I know how frustrating it is. Some of us just have skin that is prone to this so we have to be extra vigilant.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
