Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,

Hi there,

The pictures are not bright and clear enough to tell for sure. The mole looks harmless: Evenly couloured with smooth borders. Please post another close up picture if you can and let me know your age. Thank you!

Im 19. Is this a better picture.
Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 10 months ago.

Yes, it is, thank you! The moles looks completely harmless. I am quite sure about this, but:

You will understand that it is not possible to diagnose 100% from the far. So if the mole gets bigger, becomes dark in the middle or changes its form, please see a doctor.

Please don't forget to rate postively if you are fine with my answer. If anything is not quite clear feel free to ask!

Sory, this is a new question and the dot is too little to tell by photo.
