    Hello madam....I would advice you see a dermatologist ASAP...this is so that the lesion can be removed and sent to the lab for testing. over how long has it.changed to this.what was the size it was before.it may be a harmless normal mole.it looks flat, one colour and well rounded. but it should still be checked out.

    I think 2013 or 2014. pls do u have the contact of a dermatologist I could see to make complaints. and are there ways I could be feeling when its still there. and if I would have to take it off that would have to be a surgery right? January 2016 I just removed a lipoma. hope there won't be any problem going for another 1 a year after. pls reply @dr. akeem a

    yes you anc have the procedure edespite having the removal do the Filipina recently.It would have to be a very very minor surgery called a wide local excision....it just removes the lesion with a surrounding healthy margin..you can send an email to findadoctor@kangpe.com telling them your name,phone number,your state and what services you need(dermatologist). they will get back to you.

    it was very small. when I did lipoma surgery I told d Dr to help take it off but dey didn't just do it. he told me its nothing. if its a normal mole does it has to be taken off. @akeem a

    when assessing moles,we look at it's symmetry,border,elevation,colour and size....all seem normal except possibly the size as it has grown over the last few years...so ,maybe then, it was nothing to worry about.now that's it's growing,it's worth checking it out.

    OK. but I haven't noticed it grow of recent, but I know wen I 1st noticed it it was smaller than it is now, then I thought it was a mark of God(Ami olorun). but sometimes it somehow pinches or scratches

    Hello ma'am.Yes, that sounds and looks like a mole. the itching and change in size are signs that the mole should be removed and sent for histology.may turn out to be nothing .
