It looks like a flat nevi (mole) or a hyperpigmented scar

Customer: Hello
Dr. Natasha :

either way, I would not be too concerned about it right now- keep an eye on it- it is looks like it is getting darker or flaking or ulcerating, then see your doctor for a biopsy

Dr. Natasha :

Hi did you see what I wrote

Customer: Yes it has been there a long while maybe 1 year , it's just a lot of family are getting cancer lately and was just concerned
Customer: It does not itch at all
Customer: Would skin cancer be sore in this area?
Dr. Natasha :

Always possibility which is why I told you to keep an eye on it

Dr. Natasha :
