How long have you had it?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Awhile. It does not bleed, itch , or scab
Dermatologist: Dr. Chip, General pratice replied 7 months ago

OK

It looks totally benign to me--one color with smooth edges

But I can only go by your photos

So I suggest you have your doctor look at this to see if he thinks a biopsy is appropriate just to confirm that it is benign

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
