Hi Dr Hoellering

Thank you for your reply. I have just emailed you a photo and can send more if needed. The reason I am worried is that I am 45 and it is on my leg (= high risk for women skin cancer site).

Thanks!

Thank you, ***** ***** viewed it.
It is not absolutely normal, since it isn't round but has irregular borders. The colour is not homogenous but a little spotty. Therefore I would extirpate the mole. I wouldn't be worried, because it doesn't look like skin cancer to me, but it could change into one.
Feel free to ask if anything is not clear yet!
