Resolved Question:

hi! i have found a dark spots from my vaginal lips. I have had for years at least one ( looks very nicely round, single color) but recently found two more, other one quite big. They are flat and haven't caused any symptoms. Don't know how long they have been there. I´m 28, and getting worried, what should i prepare myself for?

i will add, that i have freckles in my face, and chest. I also have quite many moles, so maybe thats why i haven't put attention to these ones so much more. Is it possible that these spots could be pigment spots only? my vaginal lips are quite dark coloured.

Hello! My name isXXXXX and I will take the time to answer your question =)


Given your age and how long they have been present, they are most likely BENIGN pigmentations of your vagina. The big thing we always worry about with any pigmented area is melanoma. You should have these areas checked out by a GYN doctor just to be sure there is nothing abnormal about these areas.... but again odds are very good they are simply normal pigmented spots. If any of these spots start to grow or change in color/size at all, those would be more worrisome signs that would need immediate attention.
