Any idea how long it's been there?

I have no idea.

It looks totally benign and no kind of STD or infection

It's probably a benign compound nevus--just a bit like a mole

So nothing to worry about

If it's bothersome to you it can easily be removed by a dermatologist with liquid nitrogen freezing

Please let me know if you need any more information

Ok. Both I and my wife thought it was a mole, but we weren't sure. Unless, you have anything else for me, I don't have anything else.

Not exactly a mole but benign

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.
