Of course

Is that completely flat?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Is there a bump where the black dot is?

Doesn't look like it to me--is there one when you feel there?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No it feels fine no bumb or anything

It's just a small area of hyperpigmentation which has no particular trigger for it

Nothing at all serious--certainly not cancer if you were worried about that

Please let me know if you need any more information

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
