Got those--hold on please

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question

How long have you had it and has it changed in any way?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Had it all my life. Never noticed the dark spots around the border.

It looks benign to me--smooth borders and only one color

Doesn't look like a melanoma

But since I can only go by your photo you should have your doctor take a look at it

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.
