Pediatrician: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

This is Dr. David

thanks for the photo

there are some irregular coloring in the mole but the edges look soft

chances are it is benign.

chances for it to be a malignant melanoma cancer are very very very small at his age.

he is safe to wait 5 weeks to see a dermatologist.

Can you please take a look at more images. Can you zoom on them?

Also, if you think it is benign, can you pls let me know what type of mole you think it is.

Pediatrician: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

yes, I can zoom on them.

I can look at more images, but the computer is still not as good as a dermascope magnifier.

yes, I told you already I think it is benign.

it looks like a benign hyperpigmented nevus.
