I have a black tattoo that as my GP says "stained" a mole on

Customer Question

I have a black tattoo that as my GP says "stained" a mole on the top of my right forearm. I have seen 2 GP's both of whom said it doesn't look anything to worry about but if I want, they will refer me to see a dermatologist. What are the chances of a tattoo causing skin cancer?

Hello,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,
