Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Seems unlikely to be anything serious.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Moles may not be elevated above the skin surface i.e. they may appear in the form of a patch.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you have a picture that you can post for me to see?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It seems highly unlikely to be a melanoma or anything serious.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would not worry too much at all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If this persists for more than a couple of weeks then I would get it checked up just to be sure.

But seems very unlikely to be anything serious.

Does not seem at all to be a melanoma.
