The mark as a whole is about 1cm by 1cm, it's a light brown discolouration in the middle of the chest, with a small mole inside. Pictures attached.

the mark and mole are not raised or itchy.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The mark has been present for several months, hasn't really changed appearance, I can't remember when it first appeared.
