I have kept an eye on it for a month & it’s not grown & stayed same shape
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Just want a second opinion it doesn’t look cancerous

Thank you for getting back with the image and also the requested necessary information for my better understanding.

From your symptom analysis and correlating it with the medical history and the image you have uploaded I do not think we need to consider Melanoma or skin neoplasm here.

You may be rest assured about this currently.

This is looking like benign raised mole.

But at any point of time if they tend to change the character like the questions I have asked then and you may consider a dermatological consultation in person please.

As of now you may be rest assured that these do not require for the evaluation right now.
