I am 31, no trauma. It has not changed since it appeared over 5 years ago. I am not on medications or have any illnesses.

Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description and photo, it doesn't seem Acral lentiginous melanoma.

I can give you 100% assurance about it.

As it has remained same for last few years, so it's a benign mole.

As Acral lentiginous melanoma increases in size over the time rather than stays same.

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.
