Hi. After seeing my dermatologist...
Hi. After seeing my dermatologist recently she picked out a couple moles she wanted to watch and this was one of them. It is 2 mm, I have not observed an obvious change and I know it has been there for years. She did mention that one side was a little raised so this was why she wanted to keep an eye on it. She did tell me that most melanomas are flat (although I know there are nodular melanomas). Just wondering, is it weird to be partially raised? Also, do you ever see 2 mm melanomas? Thank you.

Dear,

Thanks for staying Online.

I am posting my answer below-

Well, Most moles are completely harmless.

Moles are usually circular or oval with a smooth border.

Moles can appear at any time during your life.

If you have any of these below things-

-moles with uneven coloring,

-moles with an uneven or ragged edge,

-bleeding, itching, red, inflamed (swollen) or crusty moles.

then it should be checked by doctor.

I understand that in your case, it is slightly raised. It would not develop into any serious issue.

Please be relaxed and stop worrying.

In your case, it is completely benign in nature. No need to get panic.

I am confident, that it is benign in nature. Please be relaxed.

This would not develop into any serious issue. Please don't worry.

Hope this helped

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.
