Hi there I shared this...
Hi there I shared this mole with you before.
Photos taken almost a month apart. Just monitoring over 3 months to see if there's any changes. Can you compare and please comment?
One side looks a bit more Brown to me but the seems to look the same on both walls if that makes sense

Thank you. Sending you a picture of picture of taken today that I have an area circled in yellow. Does this look like part of the mole is expanding or just the skin? I can't tell

No, it's not expanding--that's just normal skin around the edge

Okay thanks.
In the fact that looks like as two shades of brown isn't concerning?

No, not at all

All righty. Last question. Because you believe there's been no change I'm assuming you still feel this looks 100% benign, correct?And because I have been monitoring this mole for almost 3 months and haven't noticed any changes can it safely be ignored now? Or do I need to keep monitoring it monthly? Thanks

Correct

You don't need to monitor it yourself anymore--if I were your doctor I'd want to check it every 6 months for maybe another year

Thank you. Is that protocol what you would do with anyone with moles?

I'd do a skin check once a year

Ask Your Own Health Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
ok.
That sounds like a plan. So just to summarize nothing about this mole is concerning, has not changed and appearance and I should stop being concerned about this.
Does that about sum it up?

That sums it up perfectly

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
