Hi Shantal,


no I haven't had an answer from the expert yet.


What does it mean "closing my question"? Would I get a refund of my payment?

I am a cancer doctor

those are very good photos

the area has gotten larger, but it looks like a large age spot or liver spot on your face and does not look like a melanoma cancer

you can read more about them here

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/age-spots/basics/definition/con-20030473

you can always show it to your doctor, but I would not be worried about it.

you can try different cosmetic creams and see if it helps the area fade.

let me know if you have questions
