Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
When I zoom in on this image, it is very blurry and pixelated.
Would it be possible to take a higher resolution image?
Yes, this is a much better picture.
The appearance on this picture looks benign and is not worrisome for a melanoma.
The fact that it is changing and that there are some enlarged lymph nodes would be more of a concern. It certainly is common to have transient lymph node enlargement in the neck, so it would be less worrisome if the lymph nodes have only been present for a short time.
So, the history of a change in the mole is more worrisome than the appearance on the image. It is appropriate for any mole that is changing to be checked by your doctor, but since it does not look worrisome on the picture, it is not urgent that it be checked.
If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.
You are very welcome.
